Pardon the strong language here, but I'm very angry. My Genova comprehensive stool and parasites test is finally here, and I really want to know the results. Naturopath can't see me till May 10th, so I offered to pay for the administrative costs of having the test scanned (if they're in paper form) and emailed to me, so I can see them in the meantime, She refuses to do so. She gave me some bullshit blurb about how her regulated industry puts importance on ensuring patient safety by divulging test results in presence pf a health care specialist. So this knowledge is a danger to my safety without a naturopath present?! Is that what this means?! What kind of paternalistic bullshit is that? Or is it she wants to make sure she gets paid while I see the results? I was going to see her anyways so what is this really about, I ask! First off, this is not an OHIP service (I live in Canada, OHIP is government paid medical services, such as ordinary doctors, which are fully covered and heavily regulated). It's a private service, and I paid $400 of my own pocket money to have this PRIVATE test done! I OWN THIS INFORMATION, What gives her the right to withhold this information from me till I see her?! I've always been annoyed by this level of PATERNALISM towards patient information by ordinary doctors. Patients these days are too informed. You can't just withhold information to do with THEIR OWN HEALTH from them, and pretend you're worried they may accidentally stab themselves with the paperwork. I personally have always thought all test results (even by ordinary doctors) should be available to the patient online the MOMENT they're done, even before you see the doctor, because we OWN this information, NO ONE ELSE. And this is a privately paid naturopth pulling this bullcrap on me?! This has nothing to do with patient safety and everything to do with CONTROL. Now that I've vented (I apologize for this) is there reputable a lab I can order a D-Lactate test by myself, without having to go through this type of treatment? Thanks for the help.
