Frequently asked questions
In what situations may a Second Medical Opinion be useful to me?
When someone suffers from a serious or complex health problem, it is natural that many questions arise. Nowadays, there are multiple sources of information. However, not all of them are reliable and others may be reliable but hardly understandable to people who have no knowledge of medicine. Our recommendation, therefore, is that these questions and concerns are answered by renowned specialists in each condition.
You want to have your diagnosis confirmed
What health problems can I request a Second Medical Opinion for?
You may request a Second Medical Opinion if you are suffering from a serious, chronic or degenerative disease. Also, for musculoskeletal problems that cause chronic pain or seriously affect your daily and / or work-related activities.
What specialists will review my case?
The experts who review the cases are recommended by specialists of their own specialty and are sub-specialized in your specific condition. They have extensive and proven experience in diagnosing and treating your disease and develop research activities in relation to it.
How can the specialist make recommendations if he does not evaluate me personally?
We send the specialist a clinical summary including the most relevant information from your medical history and the diagnostic tests you may have undergone, so he will have the same documentation that would have been available to him if you had been to his office.
