You may have recently received a serious diagnosis that you believe warrants a second opinion. American Physicians Network (APN) can facilitate this process by helping you find and accessing qualified physicians in other countries for a second opinion evaluation. These are doctors who have received their country’s highest standard of certification, completed extensive training, including advanced fellowships, and have received an on-site inspection visit by APN’s team of experts.
Why Get a Second Opinion Evaluation?
Any patient has the right to seek a second opinion. You may be concerned that you will offend your primary doctor if you seek one, but most physicians understand that another opinion may be needed to make you feel comfortable and reassured about your treatment.
You might seek a second opinion for many reasons, including peace of mind. Some hospitals also may have more advanced technology or a specialist who is not available locally. If you have been diagnosed with a rare cancer, a second opinion may be helpful to confirm treatment options.
Learning more about your illness and diagnosis may also make you feel more empowered and in control of your health and able to make clearer treatment decisions.
How Much Does a Second Opinion Evaluation Cost?
The cost of a second opinion is determined by many factors including the type of the evaluation sought and travel costs to the location of the specialist. APN will work with you to connect you with a physician with the right expertise to perform your second opinion evaluation.
The medical professionals at APN can help you arrange a Second Opinion Evaluation as well as help you understand your options when traveling for these types of evaluations.
