TB: If you work with TB patient then you are a high risk candidate. Your should likely be tested for TB or at least double check with a provider to see if you have had recent testing and it was negative. IF you can not reach your provider, I would recommend reaching out to one of the pulmonologists or infectious disease specialists on the HealthTap network.
