Avoiding the doctor calls

The urologist has called me 2x and I’ve “missed” both calls. Bloodwork was last week and doctor wants to do a prostate biopsy. I’m a solid “NO” on that. I’ve seen videos and it is not something I want to experience. I’ve had 2 very painful surgeries in a year and I’m not willing to do anything again. I know how this sounds.
