The x-ray taken on [...] showed a 1.4 cm nodule on left lung. Dr. Asuncion could not see anything on the x-ray. She ordered a referral to have a chest CT scan. The referral was not marked URGENT so I had to wait close to 2 weeks for referral authorization. Once authorized I was originally told the next available. appointment for the scan would be almost another 2 weeks wait. It wasn't until I emailed Dr. Asuncion that she changed the status of the referral and I was able to have the CT scan done sooner.
