I went to a NP for what I thought was a thyroid/female hormone problem. The NP couldn't figure out what was causing my symptoms - so she told me she wanted to test me for Lyme Disease. Then she ordered a very expensive genetic tissue matching test that didn't have anything to do with detecting the Lyme virus. Can I sue her to make her pay for ordering the wrong test? I feel like I didn't have informed consent to have a genetic test performed too.Also want to follow up that I had to fire this provider and find my own endo - I was ultimately diagnosed with a brain tumor that was causing my issues. She had no idea and actually delayed me getting help with these tests that seemed to have nothing to do with my symptoms.
