Getting a Second Opinion from a
Medical Research Firm


If you want to get more information about your cancer, but you don't have the time to see another doctor, visit online cancer guides, or read all the latest research, you may find medical research firms to be helpful.

Medical research firms are independent information services run by doctors. They will provide you with personalized medical advice, fast, based on the latest medical research. They condense up-to-date information in a concise and simple guide that is tailored to your particular symptoms and diagnosis. This can help you identify the best treatment for your illness.

These services can cost several hundred dollars, depending on the complexity of your illness. Google Answers might be cheaper, but the "experts" answering your questions may not be doctors.
