Why have you not changed physicians? You need to get a second opinion and have someone look at the MRI. First and foremost, take care of your physical well being and make sure there is not anything medically that needs to be done expeditiously. If you find out there was a missed diagnosis and you feel there are damages related to the missed diagnosis due to delay in treatment, at that point you should contact a medical malpractice attorney. Keep in mind that you only have two years from the...
The Super Lawyer edition is a good source to find an attorney that is well respected by their peers for their skills in the practice of law. I believe you can find the listing at superlawyers.com. You could also call The Nice Law Firm and speak with Bob Nice. His firm does legal malpractice and the staff in the office is very nice to work with.
I can feel your frustration from your email. I would talk to another medical malpractice lawyer, or even two. Be prepared when you talk to them and be ready to talk about damages, such as time off work, hospital bills, what your aunt went through. At my firm, we always order the patient's records, but it may be helpful for you to get the records from the specialist to have with you when you meet with the attorneys.

The medical care provided in jail/prison has to fall within the acceptable standard of care.

You should find another medical malpractice attorney in your state. Your new attorney will need to get your file and check the current status of your case. If your statute of limitations is over and the attorney failed to file your case and led you to believe he was representing you, you may want to contact a legal malpractice attorney.
You chose to leave the ER and your husband sought treatment the next day. From your scenario, there does not appear to be any injury caused from the time you left the ER to the time your husband saw his primary care physician. I don't believe this is in any way a medical malpractice case. You will not have much success with a law suit that claims the doctor stormed out of the room so you decided to leave.
You should definately contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney in your state. Your medical records will need to be reviewed and a physician expert will probably need to be consulted with to determine if the physicians you saw deviated from the standard of care. Your medical records will determine if you were presenting with signs and symptoms that required more testing by the physicians that were treating you.
