Gender of Patient Can Honor Modesty For: Male

How This Doctor Accommodated Patient Modesty Requests: Dr. Roque honored one male patient's wishes for an all-male team and no sedation for a colonoscopy. He also agreed to let the patient wear boxer shorts backwards to minimize exposure.


I kept telling the GP that I try to see as infrequently as possible that I wasn’t interested in a colonoscopy due to childhood sexual molestation and abuse issues. Having my best interests at heart he offered to refer me to his gastroenterologist and to explain to him my personal situation. I made an appointment with the gastroenterologist and, at the initial interview with him, I indicated that I wished no sedation and asked to have male attendants and to be able to wear boxers backwards (ala Medical Patient Modesty). He was concerned about no-sedation, mentioning that he usually had only one per year. He, nonetheless, agreed to no-sedation. My referring doctor had already spoken to him about my privacy issues therefore, the male attendants were expected and made available. He, the gastroenterologist, looked puzzled by the boxer request but, again agreed. The colonoscopy went exactly as planned and I was delighted. The referring physician was Dr. G. Scott Smith, Orange, CA. The gastroenterologist was Dr. Jose Roque, Orange, CA. The facility was St. Joseph’s Hospital Endoscopy Center, Orange, CA. I am deeply indebted to all of the above for extraordinary care and concern. May God bless them, their families and their endeavors.
