Overscreening for hepatitis C — 2 Comments

    • At least feel you can talk to your doctor about your risk factors and the possible benefit of being tested. What I dislike about the “screen everyone” philosophy – other than unnecessary costs – is that doctors end up just ordering screening tests without really discussing with patients what they are being screened for, what the test costs, what the results might show, etc. Doctors don’t have enough time during office visits anymore, because they are pushed to see so many patients every day.
