A: The doctor sent me over here to have my blood drawn.

B: Certainly, please have a seat and roll up your left sleeve.

A: What is this test for?

B: Well, today your doctor wants us to check your white blood cell count.

A: What does that tell him?

B: Well, if it is elevated, you might have an infection.

A: Will the blood test hurt?

B: It is only a little pin stick. I am going to put a tourniquet on your arm to puff your veins up.

A: Ouch!

B: There we go! I got the blood that I needed.

A: Is a blood test painful?

B: You are in the right place. Roll up your left sleeve and have a seat.

A: What does my white blood cell count tell him?

B: Usually if your white count is off, the doctor suspects an infection.

B: It is only a pin prick. I have to put this tourniquet on your arm to make the vein easier to find.

A: Is that my blood going into that tube?

B: That blood that just filled the tube is all that I needed. Thanks for coming in!
