Overview

Thomas Jefferson University Physicians in certain specialty areas are offering telephone or video consultations, also known as “Remote Medical Second Opinion Consultations” to individuals who are looking to receive a medical second opinion. People who have been seen and diagnosed by their own physician can request a second opinion from a Jefferson physician without having to travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A remote consultation for a medical second opinion includes:

  • A review of medical records that you provide to the Jefferson Physician
  • A telephone or video discussion with a Jefferson Physician
  • A written second opinion report from the Jefferson Physician sent to you and your treating physician

Remote Medical Second Opinion Consultations are another way Jefferson physicians provide quality, forward-thinking care, regardless of location.
