Customer Question
Second opinion] Hello!...

Second opinion] Hello! I’ve been asked by a health insurance company to get the following test done :

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

We will need a current Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Lipid Panel, GGT (gamma-glutamyl transferase), CDT (carbohydrate deficient transferrin), HIV test, Height and Weight measurements, 3 Blood Pressure Readings at 5 minute intervals and a Urinalysis.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Health care coverage application

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Ive been a regulated, heavy drinker. I am curious if I stop drinking for the next two weeks, could I reduce the levels enough to be within somewhat acceptable boundaries?

The tests you are required to take is extensive and the results should indicate what your overal health appears to be. Stopping drinking for two weeks might help, but the tests are comprehensive and the two weeks may not change your overall profile.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
