Every day we have to make over a hundred decisions. The most challenging ones are about health. Can you trust your doctor’s diagnosis? What should be done if physicians could not find the cause of complaints, or the administered treatment is not effective? Is it safe to agree to an operation? One can seek advice from various sources. But when time is crucial, you can not afford to waste it on drifting in murky waters of unverified information. A more sensible choice is a remote consultation of a reliable expert, that is, a medical second opinion.

Considering an alternative method of treatment and a competent specialist's opinion could be helpful in a variety of situations. When you doubt a diagnosis or treatment recommendations.
