Well the doctor finally asked the question today...
I took my son in for the 4 month appointment.
Our family doctor had moved to a new office, and as part of that move her office now has electronic medical record keeping which can be linked into a central database for our local area. Its kind of a nice thing in that if we have to go to the hospital for anything, the personel their can pull up any pertinet information to the problem they are treating.
Apparently, as part of this new electronic program, this question has been put into the software: "Do you have any firearms in the house?"
We have had this doctor for 3 years now and intend to keep her forever. We are her first family patients, and have established a great rapore with her. Never has the topic of firearms ever come up in a profesional meeting.
The conversation went like this:
Doc: "Do you have any firearms in the house?"
Me: smiling "None of your concern."
Doc: Looks at me and smiles "Are they secured or locked up?"
Me: "None of your concern."
That was the end of it. She knows that we own firearms. I have never disclosed that I carry, which I happened to be at that very moment. I don't believe that it is a big deal to her. However, as I think I very well pointed out, I believe the fact that I do own firearms has absolutely no bearing on my or my family's medical records.
Everything else went fine, and she reminded me of my upcoming physical. I think she just enjoys those so she can have the opertunity to harp on me about my bad habits. :spankme:
