High Levels of Vitamin B12

I've been reading posts about this but they are all about low levels of vitamin B.  Has anyone ever had their labs come back showing high levels of vitamin b?? My doctor that ordered the lad work is out of town for the next 3 weeks and the office told me he has someone "filling in" for him but they are not able to go over my labs with me. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
