I have a few concerns

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

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

I had blood test done and concerned about the results my dr seemed to fob it off which is just not good enough to me
