I had a bad experience with the receptionist/nurse who took my blood pressure. The first reading she reported was 136/85 and so I requested the doctor for a second reading. This time I carefully looked at the monitor after the test was complete and the display showed 124/85 however the nurse reported to the doctor a higher number which the doctor said was in the 130's and I asked the receptionist and she maintains it was more than 130. So I cannot trust this practice anymore.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
