Customer Question
I was exposed to...

I was exposed to very high levels of radiation at work. Are there any doctors who can examine me to see if I have been affected

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

I do not know the accumulation of radiation but have been exposed for over a year. I am making a claim through workers comp but they would need a doctors result

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

I have diabetes

I wasn'the wearing a dosimeter but know from a radiation survey conducted a few weeks ago that the area I work had excessive radiation for the last year and a half. If I were to guess, I probably worked in the area for hours. Is their a local doctor or specialist I can see to determine if I am Affected? I live in Casper WY. Denver is the nearest large city.

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.
