USARAD Holdings Inc., a leading U.S. Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider and its consumer division, SecondOpinions.com®, are helping numerous people around the world by matching them with top American Board Certified medical experts. SecondOpinions.com® pairs customers with expert physicians in all medical specialties.
JoAnne Giordano reached out to SecondOpinions.com® when she received a potentially devastating diagnosis when it was discovered that she had an abnormality the size of a tennis ball on her lung. A PET scan was ordered to firm up the diagnosis of cancer. “They thought I had Lymphoma,” said Giordano. The doctors wouldn’t be able to confirm their beliefs until 5-7 days after the PET scan was taken. Because her father died of lung cancer, Giordano was frightened and wanted answers immediately. “I was a wreck. My husband was a wreck,” Giordano confessed. Instead of agonizing over a potential deadly diagnosis for a week, Giordano uploaded her PET scan to SecondOpinions.com®, launched by a double board certified radiologist and serial entrepreneur Dr. Michael Yuz.
“And within 24-hours they called me to give me some peace of mind and tell me that it wasn’t as serious as maybe the doctors had led me to believe,” Giordano explained. Founder and CEO of SecondOpinions.com®, Dr. Yuz diagnosed a treatable, pneumonia-like infection versus a tumor, providing the peace of mind Giordano had been hoping and praying for.
“Most second opinion requests are related to patients having serious diseases such as if they’re diagnosed with cancer or they require surgery,” said Michael Yuz, MD, MBA. “SecondOpinions.com® gives consumers affordable top notch advice at their fingertips and the peace of mind they deserve.”
In 2013, Johns Hopkins reported that diagnostic errors were the number one most common, harmful and costly medical mistake, higher than surgical or medication errors. But insurance often does not pay for second opinions. Also, the wait to get an appointment and consultation consumes valuable and possible life-saving time.
SecondOpinions.com® decreases medical costs by preventing unnecessary procedures and surgeries. Top U.S. trained board certified specialists and subspecialists review digital images and provide expert medical opinions 24/7/365. Doctors in every medical specialty are available to provide consultations via phone or video chat. Medical questions are answered anytime, anywhere.
