The patient looking for a second opinion shall be requested to fill a registration from on our website. Post this the patient will have to share their medical records and make a payment.
Typically, within 2-3 business days after a patient has shared their medical records, a care officer will get in touch with the patient or his/her family members.
After carefully reviewing the medical records, the care officer shall decide on the right specialist to take up the said second opinion case.
The specialist will be virtually consulting the patient and will also thoroughly study the available patient information in tandem with a multidisciplinary team and write for additional tests, if necessary.
Once the results of additional tests arrive, the specialist and his/her team shall again have a discussion and then finally another tele/video consultation or physical consultation will happen with the patient where the obtained results will be discussed along with an effective treatment plan. The reports will be shared via email too.
Once the observations are discussed, the reports and the insights from the MDT will be shared with the patient’s family physician and follow-ups will be made to ensure continual care.
In line with the second opinion, HCG also offers services like dietary counselling, genetic counselling, yoga therapy, psycho oncology counselling and counselling on preventive oncology practices, to support the cancer treatment that may follow.
