MEDICAL SECOND OPINION

MEDICAL SECOND OPINION

'Medical second opinion’ is a patient's privilege to seek evaluation by a neutral or an independent doctor or surgeon of current diagnosis and treatment for a particular disease prescribed by a primary doctor. Thanks to advancements in telecommunications technology to-date, which have made it possible for any patient to obtain medical second opinion from specialists abroad in the comfort of their homes. This is the first time, to the best of our knowledge, that a service so important for health, complementing both public and private health delivery systems, has been made available in South Africa and the region. 'Expert Medical Second Opinion’, abbreviated 'EMSO' is a product offered exclusively by V&C Intl. d.o.o. (a proprietary limited company), giving patients remote access to medical second opinions of medical specialists working at leading health centres and schools of medicine in USA and other parts of the world. Our EMSO service offers you versatility in that you can obtain an opinion for any disease, from any location and by different communication means: telephone, e-mail or via a e-form available on this site (contact us). Additionally, the EMSO process is secure, since all your medical data is transmitted via a password protected platform and where necessary by courier, ensuring protection of privacy throughout the process.


Importance of Medical Second Opinion

Getting a medical second opinion fulfills your medical need and establishes your treatment goals. We all never want to get sick, unfortunately, at one time or another, we do. Second opinions from V&C Intl. d.o.o. are unique in that the diagnosis and treatment prescribed by your doctor are evaluated by an independent and, frequently, the best medical specialist in the medical field under which your disease falls, who is located at one of the best medical centres abroad. A second opinion ensures that you get diagnosed correctly and receive the most appropriate treatment, both providing you with a chance to recuperate quickly and with reduced chances of aggravated symptoms and side effects. When a second opinion confirms the initial diagnosis and treatment prescribed by your doctor, you may feel reassured and are likely to recuperate with less anxiety and uncertainty. The improved efficacy of treatment and shorter recovery times that result, make second opinion a highly cost-effective process, saving you, your health insurer and public health care provider money.
