Unsafe MRI

I went to Radiology Medical Group for an MRI without contrast. The MRI tech chose to ignore my referral and inject me with a dangerous contrast solution. I went into anaphylactic shock. There was not physician present as required by law. I suffered substantial injuries. RMG altered my medical records to make it appear that contrast was ordered. It was not. Watch out, for these are truly health care criminals.

The best

He's an extremely bright physician. He's the guy you want to read your scan. Too bad the hospital where he spends must of his time (Dominican), has gone so far down hill. It's an inefficient political nightmare.
