    One week after I have started taking the medicines.

    "The Doctor asked me to get few blood tests done one week after I have started taking the new medicines that he has prescribed."

    "The Doctor asked me to get few blood tests done one week after starting the new medicines."


    Please check.

    I am confused where to put full stop in this sentence?

    See above. There is no need to capitalise "doctor" in this context. If you had used his/her name after the title, it would have been necessary.

    In BrE writing, you have put the full stop in the correct place - inside the quotation marks. BrE and AmE differ on some punctuation rules.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
