Help Finding a Phlebotomist


#1

Being pretty heavy into HRT, my hemoglobin and hematocrit are rather elevated. Red Cross refused my blood (too high hemo) and my GP refused to order it. He's now no longer my GP, btw.

Any ideas of how to find a phlebotomist? Searching Google, no luck. Any good search terms? All I want to do is draw off a pint or 2 every 2 months (and no I won't do it myself).

Either way you need a doctors order

HH, Do you have symptoms of elevated hematocrit?

Not that I’m aware of — feel great. Is that a symptom? ;>
