Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon Patricia,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Please don't confuse excellent service with a satisfactory outcome based on your wants and desires. I can only explain the law to you---not guarantee that you will be happy with the outcome---any more than a cancer surgeon can guarantee a cure.
Unfortunately, when your physician sets up a blood draw for a physical exam, they may legally have tests done that they believe are relevant to your care, and it is not illegal for your physician to test you for Hep C without first getting your permission. While this test may not be a typical test for a routine physical, your physician obviously determined a need to test you and you should speak with the physician about what prompted that need. But the fact that your permission was not sought for this particular test did not make the testing unlawful. I am sorry
