Move more: Prolonged sitting is very hazardous to your health. Our bodies are meant to move and our physical, mental, and emotional health is enhanced when we move. There are many solutions. If possible, stand every hour to stretch, take a brief walk, sitting on a physical or consider getting a standing desk.

Dr office called to give me results but i didn't have my phone, a message to call back tomorrow was left not by the dr. If it was serious the doc would of called right?Ive been waiting a week for these

Dr office called to give me results but i didn't have my phone, a message to call back tomorrow was left not by the dr. If it was serious the doc would of called right?Ive been waiting a week for these

Communication: Communicating over the phone with your doctor is not always easy or simple. If it is a serious lab or pathology report, often the doctor will call. However, not always. Okay for you to call the doctor, report the message you received to the receptionist and get the information. Don't wait for the doctor to call back. It takes both the patient and the doc to have that relationship. Be well. ...Read more

Is : Is this the jist of your question? You previously saw a doctor who no longer works at the clinic you were treated at. The clinic (don't know if she owns the clinic or not) told you they no longer have your medical records. You believe that the doctor has abandoned you as a result. If you are under active care by a doctor and the doctor knows that he or she will stop practicing there (you are seen other than for acute visits) many doctors or clinics try to give advance notice to patients and they may provide you with information about where you can seek care. Sometimes, with psychiatric care, one doctor might call another doctor to refer care. If you are not actively under the care of that doctor (for instance, you go to an acute care clinic where you do not have an on-going doctor patient relationship) that doctor or that clinic has no obligation to assist you with establishing care in the future. In other words, that is not patient abandonement. Most clinics have written policies regarding these matters, as well as their standard operating procedures for handling medical record requests. I am a psychiatrist- it is not unusual for therapists not to release psychotherapy notes. With the small amount of information provided; I have not heard evidence of a doctor abandoning the patient's care (unless their is more to the matter than is written). I suggest you contact the clinic to find out what their policy is. I am not a lawyer and i don't know that clinic's medical record policies. If review that clinic's policy regarding handling of medical records and find that there was a policy violation - you might try to work it out with the clinic. The best place to get legal advice would be from a lawyer. ...Read more

Either way: Collecting semen can be done either in the office or at home. If at home, however, make sure you keep the specimen warm (at body temperature), bring it in to the lab within one hour, and make sure the lab is capable of performing the test, as some smaller lab collection sites do not do the test. ...Read more

I took a preg. Test at my dr office and she said the + blue line was there but, faded twice and come back next week what would you consider it? - or +

Positive: It doesn't quite make sense that the line "faded". I would consider it positive until you get confirmation otherwise. Ask for a blood test if it is unclear at your next doctor's visit. ...Read more
