Doctor phone consultation

Submit your radiology exam and the report you have received previously to The Medical Consultant for review.
Then you can schedule a phone consultation with one of our expert specialty-trained Radiologist doctors. You will be given the opportunity to ask a few targeted questions about your imaging findings from our doctors. We can tell you about the quality of the study performed, additional tests that should be performed to confirm the diagnosis, and quite possibly most importantly we can correlate your imaging findings with your medical history. Not all imaging findings are completely straight forward and often times there are several disease processes to explain your imaging findings. However, when our radiologist is able to ask you questions about how long you have been sick, where the pain is most severe, what makes it better or worse, or information about other exams and tests you have had performed, then we are able to make a diagnosis with much more confidence.

What you’ll get

  • If your questions are about treatment, then choose Clinical doctor whereas if they are about the imaging and imaging results then choose a Radiologist doctor.
  • You can ask up to 5 questions of the consultant doctor during the phone call.
  • The phone call will last 10 minutes, be prepared to answer questions your consultant may have of you so that they can give you the best advice.

  • You will receive a summary of the questions and answers in your Patient health portal.

Don't take our word for it, see what our customers say.

“I have been suffering from low back pain for a long time. I was having such pain that I was at the brink of losing my ability to walk. I had an MRI which offered little clarity. I heard about The Medical Consultant and received a second opinion consult for my MRI which not only gave much more detail than the first report but also clearly identified where the nerve impingement was. The Medical Consult has given me hope.“
