Why would my Doc review my brain MRI but not discuss the findings until I have an EEG done a week later? If there is a tumor would he wait to tell me?

In brief: Not much to worry

about at this point.
Your doctor probably wants to gather all of the information before discussing the complete picture with you. This could mean that the MRI was normal and he doesn't know what is causing your symptoms yet. If you had a brain tumor on the MRI, he wouldn't wait for the EEG results, as they are not helpful in this regard. See your doctor after EEG.
