She finally suggests that he go to a pay facility where he can get it done for $900.
This to me is insane. You can call a blood lab in the morning and get an appointment that afternoon for a blood test. If you need a family doctor, pick one out of the phone book and call. You will have an appointment the next day, regardless if you have insurance or not.
Maybe he should try to wiretap the phones of some Democratic Senators next!
And in Canada you can go to a blood lab, ask for a test and get it probably all within the same day. So the guy in the video is obviously a liar.
I've had numerous blood tests done and I never had to get an OK from my family doctor.
