» An MRI has been ordered, what happens now?
MRI requests are submitted by our office. There are several medical services plan (MSP) funded locations in Vancouver where our office submits requisitions. We make an effort to send it to the hospital that has the shortest wait time, however wait times have been unpredictable and some patients have waited over a year for an appointment. The hospital typically calls each patient directly to advise him/her of their appointment time. Please call our office at (604) 905-4075 approximately 7 – 10 business days after your exam to allow time for the report to reach our office.
