Actually since kg is an accept standard unit of measure . Hence your weight is 60 kg as stated by the doctor . But actually kg is just an accepted unit of measurement here . Had it been done scientifically your mass would have been measured as 60/9.8 kg as stated by you 

Basically you were completely right with your statement
