Andrew W and I (though c.20 years apart) had very similar examination experiences. Like Don R, I was a pretty compliant kid. Twice a year ( starting at age 7 ) I had to see the top Consultant Paediatrician in Nottinghamshire (UK). The year was 1960. These appointments took place in his specialist room / office at Nottingham Children's Hospital (long since closed and demolished). There was a small private waiting area. Usually there would be 3 or 4 children in there (I think he specialised in child patients c.5yrs - c.12 yrs. ) -usually with their mothers.
My mother was always telling me how important the doctor was, how lucky I was to be able to see him, how I must mind my manners, do exactly what he said etc etc. To save time (generally a few minutes before the appointment time), children had to strip down to their underwear before being called into his office. Usually my mother was always telling me to 'get on with it' or 'look sharp' (Nottinghamshire slang = hurry up!).
My examinations with the Doctor involved me having to strip naked (I have detailed some of these examinations in other threads). Bizarrely, when 'dismissed' I just had to pick up my vest / pants then return to the little waiting area to get dressed (my clothes still being on the chair next to my mother). The only people out there were other child patients (in their undies), their mothers and a secretary / receptionist (Occasionally there might be a nurse in the vicinity).
Thus, I was naked out there for a very brief time. I do recall moaning to my mother about this. You can probably guess her usual responses..' Shut up and get dressed' ' Don't be so silly.' 'Nobody's bothered about looking at you..' etc., etc. She would usually makes these remarks in a sort of hushed / hissed whisper. The thing was, it simply wasn't the done thing to make any kind of fuss (thereby drawing unwanted attention to her). After the first couple of visits, she always lectured me (on the long bus journey) about not making such a silly fuss about nothing ever again....or else......
