I felt greatfull since I couldn't know what was the origin of my

Dr. Galtes was preparing me saying I had a penetrating ulcer on my aorta. Asked to come to his office right after CT scan. The scan comes back normal. He says " no way these bulges don't just go away." He told me he would get back to me later that day. Didn't hear from him for a week. Seeing another cardiologist who did further testing. Different issue, but needs treatment. Now they are charging $1 per page for my records. So disappointed!
The scan that came out normal was certainly a surprise and I even discussed it with the reading radiologist who confirmed the findings. The same process was followed by the cardiologist seen for a second opinion just that he happened to have the test reviewed by a different doctor who ammended the report. I brought the case to the review committe via the chief of radiology even when I was not trating the patient any longer. Unfortunately I am not a radiologist and have to rely on their readings.
