Hello
If your doctor did the test, I would imagine it would be done correctly and he would not deliberately give you a wrong answer.
However, if you are not convinced, you can either do a home test yourself, or ask for a blood test, which will give you a definite answer and is not user dependent.
Hope that answers your question.
