I hear where you are comming from. I have had the same thing happen to me more times than I care to think about and it has gotten to the point where I will tell them straight out that test aint getting run again! When they say well the doctor wants this test again, then I tell them well run the test and bill it to him then and they usually change their mind and don't run it lol. I think it is disgusting, if a test is positive once then the chances are it is going to be positive again. It is not right as it is just like they are looking for more and more money from us patients. I also think that it is disgusting that doctors treat us like this.
