Your doctor is near the truth. You need to do fibroscan also. If it is ok you  can wait 3-6 months to check your dna. It may go very low and stay there. So you would not need the treatment but monitoring only.

As for the treatment. I would recommend to start Tenofovir instead. It is more modern and safer drug. Also you should test hbsag quantitive in iU/ml before starting the treatment, it will be very useful later, if after a few years your hbsag gets low enough you may need to add interferon to clear the virus.
