Is this right for my doctor to do to me?

Everytime I go in to see my family doctor for a sore throat, back ache etc...he makes me lay down and he pulls up my pants and looks "down there".  I can go in for a headache, nothing to do with my lady bits and he always takes a 2 second look.  Is this normal?  I have asked others and they told me they have never dealt with it!!  I feel so uncomfortable.


*EDIT* I just recently found out he has pending charges from domestic abuse and is still allowed to work!  He was supposed to have beat up his wife.

Uh NO! Why do you let him? Have you asked him why? That is why I stick with female drs.

I haven't asked because I only see him a few times a year and I am just so weirded out to even ask.  I have been looking at new drs but I live in a very small area and the closest family practitioner is about an hour away.

That sucks. :( You really should find someone new. And then report that creep so then hopefully it wont happen to anyone else.

My regular doctor has never ONCE. He isn't my Gyn, why would he? That is odd. I would never have a women doctor, but this is nuts all the same. I would report it & find another doctor ASAP ( don't make this have you turn against male doctors, this is just one crazy doctor ).

That is wrong!!!!   Don't let him do that!!! You need to have someone come into the room with you.

No offense,but in my experience,men listen more then women and my whole entourage are male doctors.  I have never had a problem with any of them.

I prefer female drs because I have a history of sexual abuse. Not by a doctor. I just feel more comfortable if its a woman. That is what matters to me.
