OESOPHAGAL VARICES

Dear Dr Bets

Thanks for your reply. If my fiance'  told his doctor that he did not want me to know that his liver function blood tests were not normal, would his doctor, when I phoned to ask, be obliged for confidentiality reasons, to tell me that they were normal?

Doctor patient confidentiality has very strict implications and the doctor is not allowed to give any information to you.
