If your doctor wants you to get this scan, then why wouldn't the scan facility offer locked compartments for your handbag, wallet, keys or other personal items? Fairly basic, in my opinion. This is a very populated facility with busy, busy. I asked a nurse there what people do with their personal items? He said that they just put them on a open shelf.
I was told that my appointment would take approximately 2 & 1/2 hours. O.K., then that is a long time on an open shelf.
Needless to say, I did not get this done. I realize how important this test is, but so is the security of my personal items! My doctor's assistant understood my valid concerns, but my doctor is not happy with me. :( Could anyone possibly offer any suggestions? Thanks so much!
