Guthrie Patient: January 2020
my provider called me a few days after my appointment to inform me that he had received the CAT scan results from another facility and that he had reviewed them. The doctor explained in great detail the differences between the old and the new CT scans and came-up with a reasonable plan of care. The call was very much appreciated.
