parathyroid dr/diagnosis in Los Angeles?

Hello all,
I am fairly sure I have a parathyroid problem, though my numbers are borderline. Ca is borderline high and my PTH is borderline high. Urinary calcium is off the charts. I have osteoporosis, and markers for bone breakdown are really really high. (I am 31)
I finally got a dr. to order a sestamibi scan, and now after reading Dr. Norman's site, I am so scared it will be falsely negative and I'll be sol.
Has anyone had success with this in Los Angeles? the scan is supposed to be at Cedars... but now I feel like I have one shot at this! is that the best place to go?
any other ideas?
