Not sure I've edited this enough. Somebody warn me if I left anything in here that could later prove embarrassing!

Abnormal MRI of head

CCHS STAFF PHYSICIAN NOTE OF PERSONAL INVOLVEMENT IN CARE
I have reviewed the follow-up note obtained and documented by the advanced practice nurse and I personally participated in the key components and have answered all the patient's questions.
57 year old male with non specific MRI findings which have not changed over time. The etiology of his symptoms is still not clear to me. He has on-going neck pain, dizziness, and poor balance. Will refer to neuro-otology and recommended neck physical therapy. Follow-up in 6 months and repeat brain MRI in 1 year. All questions answered. (HA! What in the world's wrong with me, doc? Answer that one! How to treat it? That's another real poser, ain't it?)
