Blood work to be sent to Mayo...what are they testing for NOW?
The Doctor who diagnosed me with Sjogren's Syndrome 3/5/19 was ordered additional blood work which "needs to be sent to Mayo's. It's expensive, and we will contact your insurance." Wha-wha-WHAT?!? When I asked why it had to go to Mayo, what are they testing for, etc etc. he replied, "That's just the lab where we send that certain test." I replied: What is this test testing for please? Haven't heard back. Why do I see dollar signs? He asked me if I had ever thought of having a lung transplant. I was shocked to be asked such a question. I'm unwell, but nowhere NEAR that unwell, and if so, not something I would do. What I'm looking for here is a way to determine what blood work gets sent there from my particular Doctor, I'd really like to know, and don't appreciate being brushed off like a stupid child. Is there anyone who can help me or direct me? Many thanks, Suzi
