What would happen if my doctor wore the johnny and I had on a fancy robe?

There’s something about changing into a johnny, the clothing equivalent of a paper bag, that strips our confidence, intelligence and power as patients.  So what would the office visit feel like if the patient put on a luxurious dressing gown and the doctor wore a johnny?  The wardrobe power swap wouldn’t, alone, re-balance the doctor-patient relationship, but would it help?

Thanks for the ‘toon Tyler!
