Expert Medical Opinion

Best Doctors Expert Medical Opinion is more than just a second opinion; it is a confidential, patented process that complements the care you receive from your own physician by providing a second expert review, bringing greater certainty to your diagnosis and treatment plan. Best Doctors medical specialists perform an in-depth analysis of your medical data, including diagnostic imaging, test results and pathology samples. We provide an expert’s detailed summary of the findings, which we encourage you to share with your physician.

Oncology Insight with WatsonTM

With Oncology Insight, members receive an in-depth medical review from a world-renowned expert oncologist. That Best Doctors oncologist is equipped with Watson™ technology’s cognitive platform that provides insights from large amounts of structured and unstructured data with a machine that has been trained with millions of peer-reviewed sources and is continually updated with new literature.

“A doctor has this big data challenge, given the thousands of medical research studies done every year. It is humanly impossible for an oncologist to know all that information. This is about providing that insight to the oncologist for a shared decision-making process to help make sure the best treatment options are considered.”
– Kyu Rhee, Chief health officer for IBM Watson Health
