As a patient of the MRI world these days...it really is the responsibility of the patient to mandate and schedule MRI appointments performed.
I was told after initial extraction of tumor and Gamma Knife that I will be recieving a MRI every 6 months, then going to every year. The latter part of those appointments I had to ask the Doctor's office (Gamma Knife, as I am under the care of the Gamma Knife Dr. now) of when I was expected of my next MRI, they forgot and asked why I wanted one, Do you have a presription? Why do you want one? After a few weeks, they call back and set up an appointment. This was the first MRI after the Gamma Knife, the most important one, as that was the one to determined if it worked. All was good post the MRI results. Then 6 months later, I get a letter in the mail stating I need to set up and appointment, okay. I call, oppps, THEY made an error, call back next month to set up your appointment.
I've scratched my head enough of this MRI "scheduling" it ENSURES myself that I, being the patient, need to take of myself and keep the doctors "in check".
Anyone else have such a fiasico with their doctor?
Its funny when you have ALLLLL these doctors in your "business" and the patient has to relay information to them via YOU.
