Someone  in the diabetes forum wrote he requested his doctor  send his same blood sample to 2 different labs  as he was concerned about accuracy. The doctor refused.
I would ring up another doctor  and find out if he has a problem with my request. The one who has no objection   see him even for this  single instance.  Or ask two  blood test requests  and you go to  2 labs yourself to draw the blood.  The results go back to the doctor and you will get it.
Here in Australia  I sometimes took  patients I advocate for  to another outfit   for catscan or xrays etc  although  the request form  was for some other  service. They accepted it and Medicare  covered it just the same if it was requested by the doctor  to treat it as bulk billing.
I hired my doctor. Was let down to many times  I decided to write a letter  and asked if  he/she is willing to assist me with my health issues I want to take charge of. he was willing.   5 years into it now  I share  information with hime which in his hands can do  so much more good then in  my limited one.  he only asked that whatever I take to him be from credible sources.  I requested in my blood tests  items included he was not aware of. I make sure  My requests are  legitimate. We can't afford to just follow orders  and better look for dedicated and able practitioners  who  are professional  but   act out  their vocation.

Bravo:) I had to almost die before I woke up and took control of my health. Why do we believe doctors are Gods?? Find a medical professional to work with you and be responsible for your own health.
