Legal second opinion

Your legal team will submit the radiology exam and the report they have received previously for the patient they are representing to The Medical Consultant for review by our Radiologists doctor specialist. We can serve as your expert opinion sharing the wealth of knowledge that our radiologists contain. We value the legal processes contribution to ultimately ensuring that patients are provided with the health care that they need to recover worry-free. In addition to the second opinion consultation report, we will comment on whether the exam quality was adequate to evaluate the disease process in question, we will indicate if the findings are new or old, and we will let you know if there would be additional imaging tests which may be of value in confirming the diagnosis. Our goal is to provide lawyers with detailed information about the patient so that they can best represent their client's needs.

“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.“
