Customer Question
I am a patient...

I am a patient of Dr. Goodrich. Historically, my blood pressure has been normal to low eg., 120/75. In the past month or so at doctor visits it has been around 150/95; I checked with my own monitor and got similar results. I would like to inform Dr. Goodrich about this

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Have you been feeling dizzy or lightheaded?

No to the questions. I had a check up late last summer, I believe

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

I believe Dr. Goodrich has it all as I have been seeing him for many, many moons

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.
