mri of rt shoulder
Cannot belive the time it takes to get approved to have an MRI. thought i could make the appointment after i saw the last orthro dr. in case i needed an MRI of the knee along with the shoulder. Went accross the street after the knee dr to the Radiology dept at the Public hosipital. Of course no appointments made there, but i did have them make a copy of my pacemaker card. I called for an appointment and they asked for the code of course the dr. did not put it on the work order. They tried contacting that office. she said could not get through i should call. I did and left a message for them to fax that number to them. I called the next day but they do not check their fax'es to later in the day. Called this morning then they said it needs to go to something called " heart board". Then they had to call the cardiologist to have him sign off and fax that to them. I did ask about Medtronic and was told their office is in Tampa and get can there anytime or day. Now Friday afternoon not sure if will hear from them today or next week. Told the gal hopefully early in the week, as then i need to call Dr. for appointment to get results of shoulder, did want that by next Friday Jan 31, as my sister was visiting and she can hear first hand ,who can do the reverse shoulder replacement if needed.
