For attorneys- Legal second opinion

Your legal team will submit the radiology exam and the report for your client to The Medical Consultant for review by our radiology specialist.   

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 attorneys with a detailed radiology report 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.“

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