"I couldn't go in with my partner"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital / General medicine

My partner went to have her breasts examined by a doctor and to have an ultrasound and she wanted me to go with her but they said that no males are aloud in the room when the patient is having an exam. Why cant a male go in with his partner while she is being examined by a male doctor.
