Second opinions decrease the chance that a mistake will be made with your health
Every day many people have radiology exams performed and after seeing their doctor they do not fully understand the results and the impact these results may have on their lives. You shouldn’t leave your doctors office thinking, “Well if it’s serious I am sure they will call me”. However, we are all living busy lives and doctors are no different.
They want to spend more time with you explaining what your diagnosis and results mean. Unfortunately, they can’t always do this because they have a waiting room filled with patients fighting for time with their doctor. A study in 2018 showed that 27% of doctors spend 12 minutes or less with their patients.

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.“
