    Doctor retook my blood pressure and suggested a plan to have me take my blood pressure at home for 60 days recording results on a blood pressure log. Additionally doctor scheduled a blood draw for cholesterol. I returned several days later to the same building where blood was drawn and no additional paperwork was required by me to be filled out. Very easy process for the patient.
