Where to get an MRI ASAP! Please Help!

HI, my husband has a permanent ankle injury and needs an MRI to mail to his dr. in the united states. After one hospital turned him down for an MRI due to the fact that he didn't see it as necessary (his injury is very serious so we were confused at that), we are trying desperately to find another hospital with a good Dr. that will most likely do the MRI. 

Does anyone know of a good hospital with an MRI section? 

We tried PNU but they are all booked before we leave!

I had one done at DongA University hospital.  You may have to go through the Orthopaedic doctors to get the MRI, but the good news is that they speak excellent English.  Just explain why you need it, and you should be golden.

Try St Mary's (Seong Mo Byeong Weon) in Yongho dong. Although if you can get to either of those other places they will be equally as good.

20,22,24,27,30,131 buses stop near there. It's right at the very top of the hill.

You could also try Haeundae Paik Hospital in Jangsan.  They have an international clinic on the third floor with a nurse and several doctors who speak great English.  I went there recently and they were very accommodating.

The Wallace Memorial Baptist Hospital s running a medical office for English speakers at Namsan Station.  Their SOS number s 1399 ask for 외국인진료실 for an immediate checkup for MRI records.  They have a specialized room to pull out all type of medical documents.  Drop a line to ask for an "Online Counsel" at http://www.wmbh.co.kr/counsel/write.asp .

I had an MRI done recently on knee at Mirae Hospital (specialty: orthopedics).

It is located in Allak-dong, fronting the main street that runs from Dongnae to Haeundae.

The No. 101 Haeundae bus goes right by the hospital.

Also, it's about a 10 minute taxi ride from Dongnae Station.

The telephone number is 523-3200.
