What should I do? (MRI)

I have several appointments, one next Weds. and one next Monday. One with an Oral surgeon and one with a Dentist. I would like to find out NOW what is going on with me, but how do I do that? Should I insist on getting reffered by the Oral Surgeon or Dentist to another Doctor for getting an MRI? What do I do from there? Where do I get an MRI and how much should I expect to pay for it?

Re: What should I do? (MRI)

After months of waiting to get a definitive answer from my insurance company (an after who knows how many millimeters of bone worn away) I learned that I can have a CAT Scan, and that it will be covered. My doctor phoned in an order for it today. Unfortunately, it will cost me a $250 deductable, and 20% of the remaining $200, which I won't pay if I can wait until June 1st. I haven't eaten solid food since January. I can wait loner for that, but I'm concerned about irreparible damage, and wondering if it is already too late, and should I just wait until June at this point...assuming my employer renews my contract next month for another year.
