Did the doctor say what was the infection for which the antibiotic was prescribed?

 

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No, just recurrent cough and sore throat and an increased lymphocyte count. Question needs to be two- to three-page Word document.

I'm sorry, but I cannot provide you with a 2-3 page Word document. I will opt out.

OK! Thanks
Expert:  Dr. Cameron replied 6 years ago.
I can tell you what the child has and you can write the 2-3 page word document with the references I supply you. Would that be okay? Becuase for a doctor to write this for you would be about 2 hours of our time and cost you around $200.
