  • Hi jk,
    Glad you found this great site.
    We don't read mri's here or give out names of docs.
    As Alex asked what about the doctor that order the mri?

    Was this your primary doc? That Doc would be the one to find you a specialist. That way you can bring your films and report and the doctor can explain what these findings are.

    I hope you find someone in your area to help you out.
    How did you hurt your neck?
    This is a great site with a lot of support, so welcome and please go back to whom ever order this mri and get some answers.
    Please keep us posted
