FACT: How Common is a Medical Misdiagnosis?

According to a study undertaken by the Mayo Clinic (2017) in the USA, it was found that 21% (1 out of 5) of serious cases were diagnosed incorrectly.

A wrong diagnosis and incorrect treatment can set a patient on the wrong path and lower the chances of recovery. Getting a second opinion from an experienced specialist at a leading hospital can help to reduce this chance.

Who needs a second opinion?

When it comes to your health and treatment, ensuring you are getting the right treatment can mean everything. Getting a second opinion from a specialist in the same field assists in giving certainty that the advice from the first specialist is correct. But who may need a second opinion?

  • If you have been diagnosed with a serious condition and would like to confirm the diagnosis.

  • If you have been told to undergo surgery and would like to know if that is the best option or if there may be alternatives.

  • If you have been told to undergo serious medical treatment and would like to know if that is the right treatment or what other treatment options may be recommended.
