Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
nice to meet you
I'm very sorry about all your pain
that is terrible
you're welcome Charlotte :)
have you ever had a colonoscopy?
at 55 you should have
in the US, you would have had one at age 50 for screening purposes
so I agree with you 100%
you need a scope
But how do I manage to get one
you could ask your GP
or go private
But my GPs are reluctant to refer me for anything. I turn up to the surgery too many times. They don't believe me.
but a scope is standard of care
even for screening purposes
a normal person with no symptoms should have had a scope by now
I agree with you but I don't understand why I cant't have one.
I don't either. I'm sorry.
I am stressed about this.
I'm sorry :(
I know you are
I can tell you though that I don't see any alarm symptoms
so I think you are probably fine
but you do need a scope
I find change difficult. I have been to this GP surgery for more than 20 years. One thing I could do would be to change GP surgery. Do you think that this would be a good idea?
yes, I do
sometimes a fresh set of eyes is needed
Although difficult I think this is what I shall do. Thank you.
Any more questions for me Charlotte ?
OK I think that this is the answer to my question. Thank you.
did I do excellent work for you today?
would you be so kind as to rate positive before leaving?
