Go back to the doctor and demand a second opinion. There may not be family history, but I'm sorry any and all tests should be done for his welfare. In fact, if it was my kid, I would be looking right at him and saying "You refuse to do a test on my son because there is no family history you said? Further ado, regardless of family history or not you have to treat any patient that comes in. And here you are endangering my sons life because in my heart I know something is wrong and you are refusing to help me find that problem. How would you feel if this is YOUR kid doctor? Would you want all the tests ran because you know something is wrong? Would you fight for the wellbeing of your child? Because of your actions, I am now demanding a second opinion and considering on turning you over to the medical board." But I worked 5 years in health care, I know the crap they pull, and frankly I dont and refuse to stand by it. When he tries to respond, listen to what he has said then if he tries to say he can treat Alex say "Doctor, I had confidence in you, and you broke that confidence the moment you refused to run tests on my son. How am I going to be sure you wont do this again? How will I know you arent going to mislead me? I'm sorry, but I can't trust you anymore. I need to look out for my children's safety and well being and health just like you would do. Bye." And walk off then get another doctor. But I am the smartalic.... :P I wouldnt turn them over to the board, but the mere threat and you being straight forward lets them know its uncool and not right. Speaking of children, I must go tuck in Dakota now.
