"Due to the complexity of radiology, it is essential for every patient who has an advanced radiological scan such as an MRI or CT scan to get a second opinion from subspecialist experts," says Michael Yuz, MD, MBA Founder and CEO of SecondOpinions.com. Yuz urges people to educate themselves on the importance of obtaining a second opinion. "It could be a matter of life or death," says Yuz.
According to a recent study conducted by the National Practitioner Data Bank that examined 25 years of malpractice payments, diagnostic errors are the leading cause of death due to medical errors. It is estimated that 40,000 - 80,000 Americans die from incorrect diagnoses each year.
SecondOpinions.com connects patients globally to top U.S. physicians in any specialty and sub-specialties. Within hours, patients receive a second opinion from a board certified physician.
