    My first doctor visit while carrying...

    I went to the doc for the first time since I started carrying yesterday.

    The first nurse asked me to take off my jacket so she could take my blood pressure. I said, "Just so it doesn't surprise you...I'm wearing a pistol on my belt."

    "Oh, ok. Thanks for the warning."

    That was that...with her.

    Then the PA comes in (I didn't need or really want to see the real Doc). She needs me to take my jacket off again, to listen to my chest. I give her the same heads-up.

    "Oh, no problem. You're not the first person with one to come in here."

    I replied, "I figured I probably wasn't."

    Then she says, "Well, I promise not to reach for it and pull it out."

    I chuckled and said, "Ok, then I won't either."

    She laughed and that was that.

    Perfect.

    misplaced modifier in the first sentence

    did you start carrying yesterday OR was yesterday the first time you went to the doc while carrying.

    Perfect.

    I would have said, "you can pull it out any time you want baby...oh, you were talking about the gun?" hehe

    There are more people in the medical field who carry than you think (myself included). Too bad in hospitals no one can carry, makes us an easy target. Every doctor's office I've been to has been cool with it, in fact my family doc carries.

    My neurosurgeon's entire office building/surgical center is posted. He performed both of my spinal fusions and since I'm still having follow-ups on the surgery last December it's gotten really aggrevating. My wife was released two months after her fusion and my next appointment will be the eight month point ... on second thought, it's gotten aggrevating and EXPENSIVE!

    This is *may* be due to the MRI machine located inside the building.

    That'd be my thought too but they (partnership practice) have a separate building a few blocks away with all their imaging equipment. I think they've just chosen to be victim central to give themselves a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

    I freaked an X-ray tech out one time when I got a full-body X-ray. My 439 showed up real well.

    Sounds like you have a pretty good Doctors office there. I'd stick with them.

    My Doc is the same way and we always end up talking guns and shooting when I go for an appointment.

    That would actually be irrelevant. Guns and MRI magnets don't mix, but that only applies if you walk into the MRI room with metal. Walking by in the hallway won't matter, let alone in any other part of the building. Banning guns from the MRI room is a very good thing. Banning them from the entire building because there is an MRI present is stupid.
