My doctor doesn't feel it's necessary to order a CTA

Customer Question

my doctor doesn't feel it's necessary to order a CTA or MRA to rule out plaque blockage. There is almost no risk involved and i want to pay out of pocket for the test. i have no way of ordering this because our county is too strict with laws. what am i supposed to do if i'm in pain and they want to justify everything through blood work. Labs aren't good enough these days to wait around. what am i supposed to do before it's too late?
