Why is doctor ringing me back for my blood test results?
In my doctors they give patients between 5-14 days to ring back for blood test results. I am being tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis and usually they give my blood test results over the phone for things. I was recently tested for my Thyroid and it came back negative, they told me over the phone. However this time they aren't telling me and are getting a doctor to ring me back this afternoon. This hasn't happened before there ever, do they do this when something has shown up?Never has ever happened, all my blood tests for other things has come back negative however
Answers
Well usually if they won't tell you over the phone, that usually means that something has shown up, maybe the thyroid was too up, for hyperthyroidism(makes too much) or hypothyroidism (not make enough) and they would want to tell you this in person so they could talk to you about plans needing to be done. But don't worry too much.
Oh My God! your doctor is a "Dracula" or may be a Vampire.
