My husband`s blood pressure on his left-side is 120/70 and his right-side is 150/80. What kind of a doctor should I take him to see and what questions should I have prepared for the doctor?
See his primary care physician. It is normal for the BP to be slightly high on the right side. Keep taking more blood pressure readings and take the record to the family physician.
