Where can one go to get an MRI of the pituitary gland when all pituitary hormone tests are normal but symptoms exist?

Enlargement of one side of pituitary gland plus deviation of stalk and presence of symptoms indicate possible presence of adenoma. However, hormone tests are normal so endocrinologist feels pituitary gland ok. I disagree. Where can I get second opinion and MRI of pituitary in Texas area?

Hello. Thank you for posting.

A second opinion never hurts if you are feeling unsure. We can't offer any referrals as we don't do that. But you can Google doctors in your area or check with your insurance provider for doctors in your network. Did you tell your current doctor how you feel about this? Perhaps he will order the MRI if he knows how concerned you are.
