How Our Virtual Expert Second Opinions Work

1. Live Intake with Nurse Care Manager


Your Nurse Care Manager will carefully document your second opinion request. This call can happen right away when you register, or you can schedule it for a later time.

2. Records Collection

With your consent, we do all the work of collecting records and thoughtfully preparing your medical information for review by the expert physician to best evaluate your diagnosis and/or treatment plan.

3. Medical Records

When applicable, we’ll carefully review your medical information including any pathology or imaging that was provided per your request.

4. Expert Matching

Your Nurse Care Manager works with our Chief Clinical Officer to identify the best expert specialist for you. Cleveland Clinic has over 3500 specialists in 550 subspecialties to ensure you receive the highest-quality review of your diagnosis and/or treatment plan.

5. Expert Review

Our expedited process makes direct access to Cleveland Clinic specialists possible weeks sooner than it might be via personal outreach. Second opinions are provided in just one to four days after the records collection is complete.

6. Opinion Delivered by Expert Physician


You’ll talk with your expert specialist on a live video call (where applicable), during which you’ll interact directly with your Cleveland Clinic physician and can ask questions about their recommendations.
