What symptoms do you have? What was the protein and creatinine level in the urine that you read as showing high levels of protein. If you are not satisfied with your current doctor, it is your prerogative to consult a different one. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.

Four ultrasounds seems excessive. Glad your blood tests are normal. For urinary protein you need to get a 24hr. urine collection protein test and if high see a Nephrologist. Good luck.
