You can find the original reports here.

Both these doctors knew that I had written a book and I am well versed with the pathological procedures. They took special care to investigate my case to the best of their capabilities. However, I had not informed them that I was doing a comparative study of their reports. Both the doctors have performed these tests in same lab using the same lab equipments.

After getting both the reports, I found significant differences in both the reports over a span of just 48 hours! When I asked them to explain the reasons for such a huge differences in the reports. They immediately became defensive and started to justify and rationalise their results by explaining their limitations.

Unfortunately, I could not follow up further on this issue because I have time limitations due to my other responsibilities.
