"Undignified"

I went for a viginal scan today the staff was lovely , but on entering the room I was asked to put a gown on and take my trousers and underwear off in front of them not behind a screen this made me feel uncomfortable,in my opinion I should have been asked to change in privacy and then enter the room rather than get my clothes off in front off staff ..... please change
