I'm Confused

I have just had a crazy two months, I went to my doctor for a routine check-up and was instead diagnosed with MVP. So, we did all kinds of tests and screenings to see how severe it was, finally ending at an echo-cardiogram. When that was done, I was told I did not have MVP, but Mitral Valve Stenosis instead. So, while I waited for the final report I had been trying to figure out this new condition, days pass and I finally get my results... Which say I do have MVP and no stenosis. But more interesting, It says I have Chiari Malformation. So I researched it and found this has nothing to do with my heart.

Can Chiari Malformation be detected through an echo-cardiogram?
Should I junk all of these results and find a new doctor?
