Details, details: You can't really expect someone to recommend how to treat you by looking at a few numbers. You have to sit down with a doc face-to-face with whatever info you have and discuss your situation with him/her. This is not to be done in 400 spaces. You noted that 2 doc's you spoke to had differing opinions! What is that telling you!
