More details to this question:
I paid cash for my MRI and my doctor visits. I took my MRI back to the doctor and he looked at it and he told me that it was clean and that i had no problems in my spine and there was nothing to worry about. I explained to him that I had already looked at the images myself and i could see that something was wrong with my disc. He said that i was wrong and we were done with my appointment. I went back to Cleveland images and got the report from the MRI. They found several problems with my spine so i took it back to the doctor office and the doctor refused to see me.
