Customer Question

Hi,
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: Hi, I have continuing pain in my hip and knee (left) and would like a referral for an MRI to an Affidea clinic in Waterford..
JA: How long have you had the pain? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: I have the pain since Jan. and am taking paracetamol at night - not every night. I am also doing stretching exercises which help with stiffness. Its not a bad pain just a persistent ache.
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about the pain?
Customer: No, my doctor is only taking phone consultations, which I don't want to do.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I am taking medication for anxiety and Zopitan sleeping tablets.
