Hi, my girlfriend has post concussion sydrome, she has had

Patient

Q: Hi, my girlfriend has post concussion sydrome, she has had more than 3 concussions in the past 4 years. Her neurologist now has not ordered a new MRI even though she has shown new symptoms since her most recent concussion. In fact, he doesn't have her MRI from a year and a half ago, but he is taking her moms word for it that it was clean. He is only trying new and very powerful medications on her and wont schedule a new mri to save her mom money and her mom wont ask for one. Is there anything I can do to get her an MRI? even if I pay for it myself?
Thank You.
