I'm looking for a primary care physician in the San Francisco bay area that won't give me a blank stare when I describe my diet and most importantly, won't just try sticking me on statins simply because my total cholesterol number is above 200.
Since modifying my diet and doing a lot of research on this topic, I have a clear idea as to how misleading the standard lipid panel can be. During my last physical I had to cajole my Dr. into a VAP test, which came back with low trigs and LDL that was solidly type A. I still got the "we should consider statins" tripe.
So, time to find a new doctor.
