Why Do I Need Best Doctors?

If you were diagnosed with a serious illness or injury - wouldn’t you want answers to the following questions?

  • Is my diagnosis correct? 
  • Is my medication right for my condition?
  • Is surgery my best option?  
  • What is the best treatment?  

Best Doctors provides access to the world’s best medical experts who can review your diagnosis and get you the right answers about your condition and treatment. It’s valuable peace of mind to help you make the right medical decisions.


Best Doctors provides three Valuable Services:

1. INTERCONSULTATION - expert second opinion service  

Best Doctors will identify a world-leading specialist who will undertake an in-depth review of your medical documentation, ensuring your diagnosis is accurate and helping you understand the most appropriate treatment options available to you. Even pre-existing conditions can be reviewed. Your Case Manager will discuss the findings of this review with you and send the report direct to your home.


2. FINDBESTDOC - referral service

Best Doctors will carry out a customised search across a continuously updated database of over 50,000 world-leading specialists to identify up to three expert consultants in a location suitable to you, who could provide you with appropriate treatment. Your Case Manager will work with doctors affiliated with top teaching institutions to help explain your options and choose the best specialists for your particular condition. Every recommendation is based solely on quality and expertise.


3. FINDBESTCARE - navigation service

Should you choose to receive treatment outside the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland at your own expense, Best Doctors will provide assistance with coordinating your appointments, hospital admittance, accommodation and travel. This can help to reduce the stress of receiving care away from home. Best Doctors will also continually monitor your case to oversee the medical care you receive.
