Crystal Report 2011

Created a report that pulls ultrasound test from providers notes.  Was able to filter by test, but the notes field is just one field with 550 text characters, I am trying to pull the ordering physician name which is imbedded in this field. The location is random, but it is always right after the string “Phys: (provider’s name).” Is there a way to pull this?  Appreciate the help. Thank you

It will be slow.  Will the name always be in ( )?

Are you filtering on it or do you just need to display it in the report
