  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
As I mentioned the MRI manager took me back up to Dr. Schwartz office to see if he would wrap my head again. I so appreciated Dr. Schwartz immediately squeezing me in between his appointments to wrap my head again. I want to reiterate that every one in Listen for Life and MRI were so kind, caring and helpful in trying to comfort me in a number of ways in order to get the MRI complete. They could only do 1/2 of it because of the pain I was experiencing.
