I was needing to...

I was needing to know if having an accident with a severe leg injury with loss of blood, head trauma and six broken ribs could raise the blood alcohol levels in the patient

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Excuse me I am talking about a client we have and needed to know if the blood alcohol levels would increase

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

I just don't know what you are saying i need to know if trauma could raise the alcohol levels

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.

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.
