Preamble: many of these issues I bring are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice along with more family time. 

“MRI- Almost the Worst”

Too many MRI companies have been getting away with CRAP work and expect the sheep to simply “get in line” and say thank you. The following images are about the worst in the nation and should not be tolerated. 

I would give this company an ultimatum to either re-do the images with the correct slice acquisition protocols or they lose my business. Never lose sight of the fact that those who control the referrals control the game. 

This is PURELY about your clinical excellence and fighting for your patients. This has nothing to do with lawyers, making money or anything else other than DEMANDING an accurate diagnosis. 

If your personality does not lend itself to being as aggressive (bordering on obnoxious) as I am, you have 2 choices… Suck it up and fight for your patients, or call me and have me talk to the MRI company with you. I don’t make any promises of decorum on my part, but at the end of the conversation they will be “sucking up to you” and probably offering to buy you dinner, taking you to a ballgame or whatever they need to do to keep your business. You are BIG business to MRI companies. 

The following is unacceptable… PERIOD!!!!
