A second opinion is an expert review of your medical or surgical history, diagnosis, treatment or test results (such as ultrasound, CT or MRI scan) by another specialist.
This can help confirm your diagnosis is correct, your treatment is appropriate, whether an alternative diagnosis or therapy should be considered or if additional tests would be worthwhile – all to ensure you receive the best medical care possible.
Recent studies show up to 88% of patients receive a new or refined diagnosis following review, potentially affecting treatment, prognosis and even life expectancy.
Second Opinion Specialists can provide you with a medical, surgical or radiological second opinion from our team of top UK hospital specialists, considered experts in their fields, from the privacy and convenience of your own home.
You may want to consider a second opinion if:
- You are unsure about your diagnosis
- You have been diagnosed with a rare, life threatening or disabling condition
- Your treatment is complex, high risk, unpleasant or not working
- You want to discuss your treatment options with someone else
- Major surgery has been recommended
- Your doctor is uncertain about your condition
