Remote Second Medical Opinion Program
The Remote Second Medical Opinion Program at The Mount Sinai Health System provides international patients with direct access to our world renowned physicians from the convenience of home. Through our program, patients around the globe can receive our experts’ opinion on their diagnosis as well as recommendations on the most advanced treatment options available. Our doctors consult with pathologists, radiologists, and other support physicians to review each patient’s medical report and provide a comprehensive diagnosis, treatment options, and medical recommendations.
We offer our Remote Second Medical Opinion Program to international patients in the following areas of clinical care:
- ENT (Otolaryngology)
- Surgical Oncology
- Vascular Surgery
After our physician and medical team have discussed the diagnosis and treatment plan, the patient has the option to come to the Mount Sinai Health System to receive medical care. Our International Services Department will coordinate each patient’s care and will be the single point of contact during treatment at our hospital.
