After not liking my previous pulmonologist and he said to me "what do you want me to do for you?" I was on the mend of healing from massive bleeding but wanted his final opinion. Xray showed some concern (I guess) and he ordered an ultrasound. I tried getting copies of the results and they refused to provide me with a copy since he was out on "family leave" and couldn't get answers what the result were. It is even difficult to have them send results to a different doctor who will want result.
