  • I’m a nurse who takes care of patient undergoing minor orthopedic procedures and this is a good point!
    Patients are so obsessed in asking for MRI to confirm a diagnosis BUT it’s important for a knowledgeable doctor to assess and examine the patient first before jumping into this aggressive test. Great input and I respect your opinions and teaching!
