MY DAUGHTER JUST TURNED 8 MONTHS OLD AND HAD TO HAVE AN MRI DONE OF HER BRAIN THIS PAST FRIDAY AND HAVE CALLED HER DOC THE PAST 3 DAYS FOR THE RESULTS BUT NO ONE WILL CALL ME BACK, ANY ADVICE?!

They may not have the results yet. The MRI will be reviewed by the radiologist, then he needs to dictate a report, then the dictation needs to be typed up by a stenographer, then faxed to your doctor. This process can take up to a week normally.

They have to wait for the radiology report before they know anything, and often they'll have to schedule a follow up appointment to give you the results and go over them. Unless it's an emergent finding, which they would have called you that evening for, it'll take those steps. It's standard. Since you didn't get that call it's a good thing! Now just be a little patient.

First I would say, breathe and calm down. These things take time, you called the first business day after getting the MRI. The results/report may not have made it to the Dr.'s office yet. I would say wait and call back this coming Friday. When you call, let them know that you don't want to leave anymore messages, ask them to keep you on hold until someone is available to discuss the results with you. If you're out and about, stop in the office and ask the receptionist if they've received the results yet or when can you expect them. What did she need to have an MRI for?
