    Luckily the doctor offices and hospitals around me don't have the gun buster signs. Only one med building has it , and it is the place where my wife gets her mamograhm done.

    This topic has been discussed before here and there are some long threads with some good info and answers to many questions. One such question as the one posted about being rushed to ER what happens to your gun. Hospitals deal with this.

    Back on direct topic. None my doctors have a sign (and in Florida...so what if they did). I often carry at the Dr.s office unless I am coming from work (federal property). Once I went for a surgical consult that ended up being a minor procedure. The Doc wanted to perform some "trigger point" injection in my groin and when he ask me to drop trow I informed him that when he came back my gun would be next to me on the counter. His only reply was are you a cop (which I replied no) and he'd let the nurse know so she didn't freak. She didn't, so good visit all round.

    My Dr's. building has a "no guns" sign on the front door, but it is not 30.06.

    Man I like all the Dr.s I go to and all but every one I have been to have a gun buster out front. I would look for 2a friendly dr.s and all but I am paying them to keep me and my family healthy not for their political beliefs.

Anxiousness, paranoia, stiff joints, dizziness, the list goes on. I would in no way carry while under the influence of that stuff cause I did not feel my self. It made me think about how many people may be prescribed this stuff and not thinking about how it is actually affecting them. Even more so in a Dr.s office where sick people congregate. I guess I also just wanted to give a heads up if you get prescribed Cipro to be aware of its side effects.
    I'm still not getting the "logic" behind this...other than possible side-effects....as another poster said, what about driving a car? Not to mention, if I'm accompanying someone to the Drs office (spouse, child, parent, brother, friend)--why should I disarm?.....

    Sorry to hear about your episodes with Cipro--never had the side-effects...

    No problems here - Family Physician and his nurse both know I carry and it doesn't bother them. Cardiologist and Veterinarian both carry. Hospital has no sign.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Gun in the doctors office?
    If I didn't carry, I'm pretty sure I'd get a lecture from my doc.

    Some medical offices are in buildings where the physicians are leasing the office space. The building my office is in is posted but only at one entrance only. I don't think it is compliant with state code here anyway. Sometimes it is the building owner who is making the decision to post not the physician. I carry often at work especially when I'm there alone.

    I was just at the DR's office a couple of weeks ago. I had to strip down a bit and just placed the gun/holster in my hooded sweatshirt...nothing was said and the examination went as planned. Got dressed and left...no comments from anyone.

    Notice I said "some" logic. I still wish carry was allowed everywhere including the Dr.s office. I would rather just let people be responsible for their actions and not carry under the influence. At least until you know how a particular drug is going to affect you. I had never put any thought into side effects of prescriptions until I experienced them. Thus I see "some" logic behind the gun buster but I still would rather the gun buster not be there and let people be responsible for their actions. I feel like an oxymoron.

    Not a problem here. Been to tons of Docs both GPs and Specialists and if anything they all want to talk about guns once they see that I'm carrying. Hospitals on the other hand are prohibited (to Civvies) but I can understand that. As I always say "out of sight, out of mind".

    I'm a family doc in south carolina. Here in SC you are not allowed to CC in a doctors office (without the consent of the owner of the practice) or in a hospital no matter if the gunbuster is on the door or not. Not sure what the law says in other states. Of course I never mind when I find one of my patients breaking the law. In fact I actually diagnosed a case of Kel-Tec induced sciatica a couple weeks back on a guy who carried his Kel-Tec .380 in his right back pocket of his jeans so much it was pushing on the sciatic nerve causing pain. I told him he needed to switch the gun to the other cheek every now and then!

    Just a quick note to say good on the OP for recognizing when you SHOULDN'T carry and acting appropriately. Being under the influence of a medication that makes your judgment suspect is a good reason to leave the iron at home. It takes a good bit of situational and personal awareness to see that, so thumbs up from me.
