Breast Cancer Index outside of the US

I just finished five years of Tamoxifen and would like to get the BCI (Breast Cancer Index) test done... but I live in Canada. The company (Biotheranostics) will only accept referrals from a US doctor. No longer taking Tamoxifen is stressing me out, but Tamoxifen was causing some not-so-good side effects so I don't want to go back `just in case'. My MO discharged me into the care of a nurse and my family doctor more than a year ago, so I can't ask her :-( My family doctor thinks it's a good idea.

Has anyone been successful with obtaining this test outside of the US?
