What kind of doctor *are* you?

Why is it that whenever I go to my doctor for an issue, I always end up with a referral to get a blood test? Is that universal to Israeli kupot doctors?

Seriously, watch this:

“Doc, I think I injured my knee.”

“We should get your blood count.”

“Doc, I’ve been getting weird headaches lately.”

“Let’s do a blood test… just to be sure.”

“Doc, my hair is falling out.”

“Let’s get some blood tests done. It’s always handy to have.”

I agree it’s good to build a medical record for me here, in a new place and all. I just don’t get why it happens like this. Do you want information about my blood? Let’s do one big ginormous blood test and get it all out of the way.
