A medical second opinion service that significantly improves healthcare outcomes

At MediGuide we understand, many of us from personal experience, that a serious or life-threatening medical diagnosis can be overwhelming. Likewise, the decisions you make following your initial diagnosis can have a critical impact on your health. Getting a medical second opinion, not only helps you to better understand your condition but also the treatment options available to you.

Concerned about offending your physician?

Most people tend to shop around before making a major purchase but when it comes to their health and wellbeing, are less inclined to get a second opinion. Comparing medical advice is not about not trusting your physician or being in denial of your condition. In fact, many physicians agree that a medical second opinion adds value. It also gives you the confidence and peace of mind to know that you have done everything you can to ensure the best possible healthcare outcome for you or your loved ones.
