My doctor ordered an HIV test for me.Submitted by blueman on Mon, 09/09/2013 - 21:51
I went to have my blood taken last week for my yearly checkup. They Usually take 2 vials for testing. This time they took 5 vials. After they did this I question why so many vials this time at the clinic. I ask what else they were testing for. They told me for Hep C and HIV. I been married many years I been with this doctor for 14 years. I have been tested for HIV and Hep C when I had surgery several years ago. Today I went for my annual physical. After going through my blood fats, liver, urine and PSA results. I question him about the other tests on HIV and HEP C that he didn't talk about. He then told me the government wants to check everyone. They were negative.
Let's see why do I have to pay for blood test that I have done before because the government wants to... This doctor just lost a patient. Do not hold facts and tests from me before asking. I am on a fix income. Has anyone's doctor done this to you?
