Giving you and your family reassurance around your medical diagnosis and treatment plan is what Best Doctors is all about.
Whatever your physical or mental medical condition*, you and your family can access a global network of medical specialists at no extra cost through your MLC Life insurance. Best Doctors specialists are all nominated as leading experts by their peers so you can put trust in their assessments and concentrate on your recovery.
From simple questions about a minor issue, to an in-depth medical review about a serious condition, Best Doctors is there for you. The Best Doctors network of over 50,000 leading specialists covers 450 specialties and subspecialties of medicine to ensure you’re connected with the right specialist for a second opinion on your illness or injury and treatment plan.
Best Doctors can provide a valuable second opinion for critical illnesses such as a heart condition, cancer and stroke, as well as ongoing chronic conditions, such as allergies, severe migraines and back pain.
Tele-health consultations mean that if you’re managing pain, have reduced mobility or if simply prefer to seek guidance from the comfort of your home, you can still access Best Doctors specialists.
Best doctors can organise the collection of all your records, X-rays, scans, test results and even pathology samples so you know their review is thorough. Sharing your Best Doctors findings with your treating doctor gives them valuable information to help decide on the best treatment for you.
