Every Opinion Counts.
Especially The Second.

Don’t let your most recent diagnosis or treatment plan define your future. A second opinion can change your road to recovery with just one appointment.

CHANGE YOUR ROAD TO RECOVERY TODAY

Considering A Second Opinion?

There’s many reason to consider getting a second opinion including:

 

  To verify (or question) a diagnosis from your doctor (EX: recent breast cancer screening results)

 

  If recommended treatment plan is risky, involves surgery, is invasive or has lifelong consequences

 

  Chronic pain with no resolution (neck, back, etc.)

 

Diagnosed with a very rare disease

 

  Required by insurance to cover a treatment

 

  Personal peace-of-mind on a life-changing diagnosis or treatment plan

 

… and many more.

Have you ever left your doctors office not fully understanding your results? Are you preparing to decide on a risky, invasive surgery on your recent diagnosis? Does your gut tell you something might be “off” about your recent diagnosis? It may be time to schedule a second opinion.

 

Studies have shown that of those who chose to get a second opinion:

 

  88% of patients left with a new or refined diagnosis

 

  21% of patients left with a profoundly different diagnosis

 

  12% of patients left with a similar (or verifying) diagnosis

 

Trusting your gut when feeling as though something is off is just as important as listening to the advice of medical professionals. Our team of expert radiologists are prepared to listen to your concerns, review your past images and results, and help you take control of your road to recovery.

Don’t take our word for it – see what they have to 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.“

Will you tell me if the quality of my examination was not good enough?

There are great variabilities in the different imaging equipment that imaging providers use. The quality can also be heavily affected by your body weight, body morphology, motion by you during the exam, as well as artifacts that can occur.

As part of your second opinion the specialist will let you know if your exam is non diagnostic or of limited value in diagnosing your illness.
