Doctor: Were there any changes in your diet or your weight lately?

Laura: There was a change of ownership three months ago, and I had to work a lot of overtime, even during the weekend.

You are probably under stress from changes at work, and the stress causes headaches, upset stomach, and sleeplessness. For now, try to relax and exercise. It may solve your problems. Come back to see me again if the symptoms persist, and I will do further tests. I am going to give you a prescription for your pneumonia. Are you allergic to any medications?

Laura: Not to my knowledge.

Doctor: OK, take this medication three times a day after you eat. Also, I want you to have some blood tests. Stop by the laboratory on your way out and have the nurse draw your blood.

Laura: I am anxious to know my cholesterol level. When will I get the results of the blood test?

Doctor: The results will be available in two weeks. Don’t stress yourself. I think everything will be OK.

Laura: Thank you, Doctor.

Doctor: You are welcome.
