Medvisit, the leading medical tourism company in Nigeria has announced the introduction of its international second opinion services, marking a significant advancement in accessible and accurate healthcare solutions for Nigerians. Medvisit’s international second opinion service is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at providing Nigerians with unparalleled access to world-class medical expertise and care. With this service, individuals can now tap into a global network of board-certified specialists, ensuring timely and accurate evaluations of their medical conditions and treatment plans. Its medical experts are based in top hospitals in the USA, UK, Europe, India, Israel, Egypt, UAE, and other leading healthcare destinations.

“We are thrilled to introduce our international second opinion service, which represents a significant milestone in our commitment to providing accessible and accurate healthcare solutions for Nigerians. By leveraging the expertise of top doctors from around the world, we aim to empower individuals with the knowledge and confidence needed to make informed decisions about their health,” Gbenga Chinedu Olaniyi, Operations Manager, Medvisit, said.

Medvisit said its decision to launch this service was driven by a commitment to address several critical challenges facing the healthcare sector in Nigeria. One, Medvisit recognises the importance of ensuring Nigerians have access to the best possible medical expertise. Through the international second opinion service, individuals can now benefit from the knowledge and experience of leading doctors from around the globe, without the need for extensive travel.

Mitigating the Risks of Misdiagnosis: Misdiagnosis and improper treatment pose significant risks to patients’ health and well-being. By offering comprehensive evaluations and alternative perspectives on medical conditions, Medvisit aims to reduce such incidences and improve health outcomes for Nigerians.

Minimising the Need for Overseas Medical Travel: Seeking medical care abroad often entails significant financial expenses and logistical challenges. By providing precise diagnosis and treatment planning locally, Medvisit aims to minimize the necessity for Nigerians to travel abroad for medical treatment, thereby conserving valuable foreign exchange resources.

The Practicality of Second Opinions

In one study, the Mayo Clinic (the number 1 hospital in America) reported that only 12% of their second-opinion patients left with a confirmation that the original diagnosis was accurate. This means that nearly 90% of patients are left with a different or refined diagnosis. Therefore, getting a second opinion is the practical way to find a doctor who can give you an alternate point of view on your diagnosis and treatment.

Medvisit’s international second opinion service operates on a streamlined process, facilitated by a dedicated Care Team that handles all logistics, ensuring a hassle-free experience for patients. Leveraging advanced technology and a vast network of specialists, Medvisit guarantees personalized attention and tailored recommendations for each individual’s unique healthcare needs.

When do people need a second opinion? People need a second opinion when their diagnosis is unclear; when they have several medical problems; when they are not responding to treatment as expected; when their doctor says their condition is rare or life-threatening; when they think another treatment option might be available; when their doctor recommends surgery or a major procedure; when they have lost confidence in their doctor; and when they want peace of mind and confidence that they have the correct diagnosis and treatment. Known over the years for its dedication to facilitating access to superior healthcare solutions for individuals and focus on innovation, excellence and patient-centred care, Medvisit offers a comprehensive range of services, including medical travel coordination, concierge medicine, and now, international second opinion services.
