A couple of weeks ago, the receptionist from my surgery told me that my thyroid antibody test had come back and everything was fine. When I asked for a printout of the results, she mumbled about having to ask the doctor. To cut a long story short, they couldn't print out the test results because the test hadn't actually been done. I questioned the doctor over this and apparently the test was requested but the lab didn't do it as it was 'not clinically indicated'. Does the lab make this decision or do they just do the tests that a doctor has requested? After being lied to so blatantly last week, the little bit of faith I had in them has completely evaporated and I no longer know if they are fobbing me off or not. Can anyone help?
