patient requests to see the physician "just to be sure." The patient should be:
a. Permitted to see a medical officer.
b. Returned to his unit immediately since he refused treatment.
Treated and returned to his unit without seeing a medical officer.
d. Treated and returned to his unit as "sick in quarters."
