If you go to see a private
neurologist, they will want a copy of your MRI
anyway. Why not, as a first step, get your MRI
CD which shows all the images, plus you should get a copy of the report as well. Reading through the report a few times might help you decide on a direction.
I've learned that keeping a copy of EVERYTHING is really important, whether you go private or public. I actually was less than confident in an MRI I had, and got a second opinion online from a radiologist.
