I can only say what happened. I was sent to him because I was having extreme gastro pain , diarrhea and vomiting. I was scared. He told me nothing and ordered a CT scan. He did not tell me to return and the CT scan showed nothing. He ordered no other tests. The barium in the ct scan has given me a drug reaction - he did not tell me how to get it out, or even that it would be a problem. I am covered in bright red itchy and painful rash too, now. Haven't slept for three days and cant get the barium out of my digestive system - He didn't explain any of this just said to get a ct scan. period. Thanks a lot.
