Is a liver biopsy accurate? The liver’s pretty big, so isn’t it likely it could miss something? How can the doctor be sure he’s getting a sample of the damaged part?

I have bad health anxiety. I get anxiety even worse for loved ones. Have trouble trusting doctors didn't miss something. What can I do?Im going nuts!
Trusting Doctors: I think this is, in fact, very common. The only wisdom I have to share is that you must find a doctor that seems to get you; one who you feel safe or comfortable with. And, then you have to give the relationship some time. I love it when patients are prepared with questions...Or who are not shy. I like questions from my patients. ...Read more
I missed a flight due to the flu and I need a doctors note. It's a sick form I have to fill out. Can you help me fill it out?
Yes: Depending on whether you have the arrhythmia while you're monitored, the rhythm disorder may or may not be documented for review. Monitoring can be as short as the time it takes to have an EKG done (10 seconds) or as long as 3 years with an implanted monitor.
