Helping with a second opinion

Second opinion anyone?

A second medical opinion can make a huge difference in your healthcare – sometimes misdiagnosis happens, or a better doctor can recommend better treatment. When it comes to serious medical concerns, a second opinion is almost a must.

But we all know the hassles and concerns when it comes to getting a second medical opinion. For one, you may not know which doctor to go to for a second opinion. While the internet may be able to help in that aspect these days, thanks to forum recommendations and whatnot, there’s also the problem of seeking these doctors out and possibly sitting through the entire diagnosis and check-up process again before the specialist can give you his or her thoughts.

What more, if you’re recommended to a doctor who is in another part of the country (or the world), then it’ll only cost more money and time.

Medical Opinion Asia may be able to help with that. An online service that is based here in Malaysia, Medical Opinion Asia (MOA), through its website, enables patients to seek second opinions from the service’s own list of top specialists in the country. It may sound like a fairly straightforward service, but there’s more beneath the surface here that makes the service unique.
