Which doctor was able to order this test done?
Hi? Question for those of you that have had a complete vitamin/mineral panel done…which doctor was able to order this test done? I’m getting the run around and beginning to think I just need a new doctor.
The nurse at my regular dr (an internal med dr) said that my GI would need to order that and then when I asked GI to do it they said my regular doctor would do that. Yesterday I was back at regular dr (trying to get some answers on why my hair is thinning out) and told her this and she said because it’s a scalp issue I would need to see a dermatologist…and that THAT dr could order the test if he/she saw fit.
This is the readers digest version…this whole process has been months and multiple phone calls and emails. Guess I’m just feeling frustrated…so I’m wondering a) Which kind of dr ordered this test for you all? And b) Was it an easy process for you or does it always involves pleading and begging? Did you have to fight to get this done also??
