she blinded me with science!

Chest X-ray without physical exam?

Paging Doctor TQC!

My doc thinks I have pneumonia solely on the basis of my having a persistent mild fever. I have no other symptoms of pneumonia. He wants me to get a chest X-ray before he even sees me.

I've had three CT scans in the last year, and he never even told me what he was looking for, much less whether or not he found it. I feel like he relies too heavily on tests, and I don't want any more radiation without a good reason.

He refuses to see me unless I get the X-ray first. He told me to go to the ER instead.

Wat do, TQC?
