What should the ideal result on thyroid peroxidase test be?

I was given a thyroid peroxidase test by my general practioner in April 2011, the result came back 65.5. He said this was positive for Hashimoto's so he sent me to an Endocrinologist who stated this was not a positive for Hashimoto's. Who is correct?
