Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.com
This is Dr. John and I will be helping you today.
I will be reviewing your question and will respond shortly.
I may need to ask a few more questions in order to best serve you.
Thank you for your patience.
Answers here are for education and information only.
Sorry to hear about the fainting spell. I can understand how your husband felt scared, but calling the paramedics was the right thing to do.
Are you having any symptoms such as headaches, dizziness or change in vision?
glad to hear. did they say how large the cyst was on the pituitary in mm or cm?
sorry to hear about your frustrations. Did they do the MRI while you were in the Emergency Department, or did you have to go back later to get the MRI?
Ok, do you recall if Dr Holt was the Emergency Room doctor, or was she a consultant that the ER physician asked to see you?
Ok. My thought is that Dr Holt was the emergency department doctor since she ordered all those tests.They would have recommended that you follow up with a neurologist or a neurosurgeon because of the cyst on the pituitary.The second MRI was recommended since it would show if there was any change in size of the cyst since the first MRI back in July. If there was change in the size of the cyst, the neurologist or neurosurgeon would make treatment recommendations based on the change in size
Do you have a regular primary care physician as well?
I would recommend contacting your primary care physician then. They should be able to help locate which doctor you were referred to and help with scheduling your follow up appointment.

I did a little research and it looks like you might have been seen at the Acute Neurology Clinic (also called the Rapid Access Acute Neurology Clinic). Was is located at the Diamond Health Care Centre in Laurel Street in Vancouver?
is that the correct clinic?
Hi, its Doctor John. Were you able to schedule a follow up appointment at the Neurology clinic?
