The concept of having a second opinion in medicine is often misunderstood and its value underestimated. The WUK Second Opinion process has saved countless lives and prevented much suffering and hardship.
A “second opinion doctor” has three attributes; he/she must:
- Be a “friend doctor”
- Have a different school of thought (i.e. not work for the same institution)
- Not be aware of the first doctor/opinion
WUK and its affiliates have developed strong relationships with doctors in all sectors of medicine across the United States. These doctors will review your medical chart free of charge and without agenda. A second opinion can be invaluable, whether it corroborates other medical advice or provides an alternative.
