It is necessary to undress completely but the gown is there to cover you up. It is normal to feel the breasts as part of a gynaecological examination. It is normal to do an internal examination. The clitoris is in the path of the examining fingers so it is often 'touched' unintentionally. If you felt uncomfortable though, perhaps you should change to someone else. Shaving is not necessary. I'm sure you can wait till your regular doctor comes back for your next visit.
