I'm truly sorry to read what frustrations you are having to deal with. Is it at all possible for you to call the MRI
location and have them overnight those films to you ? If I were you, I would certainly be trying and then I would hand them to him , explaining that you are really concerned about
them, otherwise you would not have flown all that distance to see them.
When a patient takes all of that time and expense on to see specialists, they should take the time and their expertise and use it to truly try to help the patient.
I had a recent MRI of my brain to rule out MS, and while it did that, it showed two lesions in my brain of "unknown significance".....when I saw the neuro, he didn't even mention them.
Best wishes to you,
