The Medical Consultant – Remote Radiology

 

No treatment will work

when you have the 

wrong diagnosis!

 

A generic radiology interpretation lacking detail can lead to getting the wrong surgery or delay the correct diagnosis. A second opinion can change your treatment options and get you back on the road to recovery.

Are you ready to take control?

Most insurance plans reimburse for second opinions, let us help you.

 

 

CHANGE YOUR ROAD TO RECOVERY TODAY

Considering A Second Opinion?

There are many reasons to consider getting a second opinion:

 

  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.

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.

 

Let our team of expert radiologists help you take control of your road to recovery.

Our Patient & Partners

We’re partnering with many outstanding institutions and working with many patients offering second opinions to patients around the nation.

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.“

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Common Questions

Is my health information private and secure?

Ensuring our patient’s health information is secure and private is one of our top priorities. All personal health information is encrypted end to end, is never shared with or sold to third parties, as well as maintaining strict HIPAA compliance.

Does insurance ever cover second opinions?

Most health insurance plans and Medicare do pay for a second opinion from a specialist such as The Medical Consultant. You may need to get an order from your regular doctor.

If I have to mail my CD to The Medical Consultant can I have it mailed back to me?

Yes, we can mail your disk back to you. You will have the opportunity to select this choice during your sign up for a second opinion consultation. There is an additional $20 charge. Please contact us during the upload process into your Patient Portal to receive further instructions.

Can I access my Personal Health Portal from any computer?

Yes, you can access your personal health portal from any internet-enabled device by using our secure login with your unique login credentials. We are always working to make sure that your information is safe and secure within our own systems.

Can I access The Medical Consultant from my smart phone?

Yes, The Medical Consultant can be accessed from a smart phone, table device, or computer with internet access. We do, however, encourage you to only access personal medical information on a trusted device in a secured home network. We are always working to make sure that your information is safe and secure within our own systems.

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 shape, motion during the exam, as well as artefacts that can occur. However, even exams that are not perfect still usually offer some diagnostic information. 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.

What if I can’t get my disk to download into my Patient Portal?

We have technical support which can help you transfer the files to our website. However, you can always choose to mail the disk and information to us directly.  

Will I receive a copy of my second opinion report?

You will always have access to all your second opinion reports that we provide for you in your Patient Portal. From there you will have the option to download or print your report to share with the doctor or facility of your choice. If you’re having a hard time accessing your second opinion report please reach out to us directly.

Will my personal information ever be shared with anyone else?

Your personal health information will always be kept private following HIPAA compliance. We will never share your personal medical information with anyone and we will never sell your information to any third parties. Please make sure to access your medical information on a trusted device within a trusted network such as the one in your home.

Can I call and speak with a person if I am not sure which type of service or specialist I need?

Of course! You can use our live chat feature available in the bottom right corner of the site, email us at customersupport@themedicalconsultant.com, or give us a call directly at 1-866-323-6005 and we will happily discuss the best course of action for your consultation.  However, you will not be speaking with a doctor and therefore we will not offer medical advice or consultation during these calls.

Will additional exams be recommended when needed so that I can discuss with my doctor after you provide me with a consultation?

Yes, in the process of providing the second opinion consultation our specialists will not only provide you with the second opinion report, but they will also recommend additional imaging or studies for you when appropriate.
