We may also need to ask you several questions about your problem to allow us to fully understand your problem. We will discuss with you what your goals and concerns are about your problem. To properly assess your problem area, we will ask for your permission to remove some of your outer clothing so that we can see the affected area and perform movements and test on you to establish exactly the cause of your problem. You are requested to bring all the previous MRI, CT, Ultrasound, X-Ray , Discharge summary , Doctor Prescription etc. along with you.
