Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no thanks don't call me
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

That's really a very good blood pressure for the most part.

So unless you're feeling tired and weak and light headed I see nothing to worry about here

All the same, you should let your doctor know about this to make sure we're not dealing with anemia or a low serum cortisol level

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
