Expert Medical Opinion services leverage technology and the highest-quality physicians from world-renowned medical institutions. Participants can speak to a physician within 24 hours, and a virtual expert opinion is delivered within 48-72 hours (post-medical records collection) and 24 hours for urgent cases.
Expert second opinion physicians are trained or affiliated with top academic medical institutions and centers of excellence across the U.S., including:
