My bloods drawn every 6 mos to check my Hep-C, also urine for Vitamin D analyses. This is what I've been told since being diagnosed w/H-C. Recently, I gave blood and was given a cup for urine, when I finished I couldn't find anyone to give it to. I found a nurse and she had me leave it on the hallway counter, where patients, staff and anyone else walking through could have access to it. There was no name, no paperwork and no seal on the sample. Now, he will not see me until I see a drug counselor. I was shocked and flipped out and said no. Then I found out that a niece of mine ( I don't get along with) is court ordered to see a drug counselor, and she is seeing this drug counselor. Maybe it's coincidental, maybe not. My disabilities are not being cared for now and I need help. Need advice.
Before I respond to your inquiry, I must state that we have not spoken, I have not reviewed the relevant documents and facts, and I do not represent you. Therefore, my discussion below is not a legal opinion, but is informational only. Finally, my discussion applies only to issues to which Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Federal law apply, unless otherwise specified.
That being said, a health care provider cannot perform test or procedures without your consent. It does not appear that you gave consent; this is a very strange case to me. I would seek out another primary care provider, preferably a physician.
