When Should You Consider a Virtual Second Opinion from The Clinic?

Uncertain about a medical diagnosis or treatment plan? We can help. Often, individuals find out about treatment options they didn’t know were available. And in some cases, the information gained during a second opinion consultation can even change a diagnosis.

Our solutions are for those who are:

  • Diagnosed with a serious condition, such as cancer
  • About to make a major decision about a medical next step, such as surgery
  • Considering a treatment that involves risk or has significant consequences
  • Dealing with a condition or chronic illness that isn’t improving or is getting worse
  • Confused about or struggling with a medical challenge

Unsure if a virtual second opinion from The Clinic would help you navigate your care? We invite you to reach out at 866.887.1572 to learn more.

How Our Virtual Care Solutions Work

All you need to get started is to register and set up your live intake session with a registered nurse. We’ll take it from there and get you started on your second opinion journey.

World-class Cleveland Clinic medical experts can analyze any diagnosed health issue, and our streamlined, hassle-free process keeps you from spending unnecessary time gathering records. You participate in a live video consultation with the Cleveland Clinic specialist physician precisely matched to your condition. And with the industry-leading end-to-end turnaround time, you don’t have to wait to turn questions and anxiety into peace of mind and a path forward. We deliver second opinions in under four days once records are collected, with many patients receiving their second opinion in one day.


For individuals in the U.S., the all-inclusive cost for a virtual second opinion is $1,850

For individuals outside the U.S., the all-inclusive cost is USD 2,500.

If your employer offers this service as part of your benefits package, the service will likely be of no cost to you. You can confirm with your employer or call us for assistance with navigating your benefits.
