What is the charge.

Doctor's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Doctor. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

I have been diagnosed with orthostatic hypotension but after several days of low blood pressure, now my blood pressure is getting high. I tske 25 mgs of Metropolol and 2o mgs of lisonopril am and pm. My pressure tonight is 135/94 with a 75 pulse. When I stand it doesn't drop 30 like it was and became 120/92 with a pulse of 86. Should I e concerned. I'm almost 72

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Last week, and yes my father who passed, a brother and sister.

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

I had high blood pressure which caused a nose bleed and had to wear an inflatable device for a week. I slep a lot because of the discomfort. When it was removed 3 machines couldn't find a blood pressure. That's when it all started.

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.
