Family doctor won't authorize CT scan in Toronto

Hey hey,

Would love to hear your thoughts on how to get a CT scan privately somewhere in Toronto.

Long story short:

- got a bump on my head: from my research it's an osteoma

- family doc won't help me with it himself. He's referred me to a plastic surgeon which I have to wait a few months for until seeing him

- (I don't want to wait)

- found a doc in the states who has done the surgery many times and interested in having him helped remove the bump

- need a CT scan before he can do it so he can ensure all's good

If you know where I can go to get a CT scan done in Toronto privately and quickly please let me know Slightly Smiling Face

Thank you!!!

Thank you!!

In case you don't get any replies for Toronto, you could also just hop over the border.

You'll need a request for the test from a health care professional, I think. But I'm not sure it has to be a dr. A friend got a physiotherapist to request an MRI and she went to Buffalo and had it done.

I might be wrong, but I don't think you can get a private medical CT of the head without a valid physician requisition in Toronto. You will have to hop the boarder, but I think you still need a requisition for that.
