You're not starting off on the right foot. If you want to get better, do what your doctor says. If you think your doctor is an idiot, find another doctor.
+1. Got to wonder if he's worried about the cost. If so, he should see what an MRI costs. If he does have insurance, it may not cover an MRI unless PT is tried first. Also, PT sessions may include things like a cold "cuff" and manipulation by the therapist. I had those when I fractured my collar bone in a bad crash.
