I am sorry about your grandchild.

I would get a copy of her MRI or CT scan of the brain report.

I would be happy to review it with you

she really needs a brain MRI scan which is much more detailed in the brain than CT scan.

do you know what type of scan she had done?

who was she referred to? a pediatric neurologist?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
