    Case they were just being thorough?  

    I tend to figure tests may seem like overkill but they might also reveal important info .  

    Most HMO plans seem to discourage tests.

      that always seems to provoke this particular hospital chain to pile on as many fees as possible and get you admitted to their hospital.   They also overreact when treating cancer survivors, a common problem.  It's just defensive medicine.

      I've been treated for similar infections about 5 times over the last 13 years, so I know the drill pretty well.  I usually get care at a world class hospital who tends not to overtreat or overtest, so they're a good benchmark.
