Review for thesecondopinion, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What a great resource! The only agency in the US that provides free multidisciplinary second opinions. Instead of just one doctor from one discipline reviewing medical records, thesecondopinion provides 4 to 6 doctors from different specialties and from different hospitals...and all are volunteers...Unlike other opinions, the patient is required to meet the doctors in a panel format so they can ask questions directly and express concerns. Everything is tape recorded and the patient keeps the tape.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting and talking with the patients

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that you literally cannot find the services delivered in this manner anyplace else

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

of the highest caliber

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

set up model programs in 10 states

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
