Saw Dr S in clinic yesterday.

He disagrees with Dr Al's diagnosis.

Dr S diagnosis is inactive Hep B with active polymyalgia

Dr Al diagnosis is inactive Hep B with active autoimmune hepatitis

Dr S treatment is no treatment for the Hep B and treatment if required for the myalgia

Dr Al treatment is suppress the Hep B while treating the autoimmune.

How do you get two consultants to agree?

Put them in a room with my GP as referee and let them thrash it out til they come to a consensus?
