Nina: repeat pathology detects cancer
When her mammogram results revealed abnormalities, Nina was called in for repeat testing, yet was told that there was no evidence of cancer and that nothing further was necessary. Nina remained uneasy and reached out to Best Doctors for advice. Best Doctors collected her complete records and test results and conducted an expert pathology review, which identified invasive cancer. Nina’s case was then immediately sent to a top oncologist who explained the necessary testing which she would need to have done and provided step-by-step treatment recommendations based upon the results. Nina is currently undergoing the recommended surgery and radiation and is extremely thankful to Best Doctors for its dedicated service, clear and comprehensive expert report and, most of all, for a potentially life-saving change in diagnosis.
Jennifer: reassurance on treatment
After breast cancer surgery, Jennifer was informed that the cancer had not yet spread to her lymph nodes but that it was getting close. Given various treatment options, she and her husband were unsure. After collecting all of her medical records and retesting her pathology, the Best Doctors specialist confirmed that, given her case, there was a much greater benefit from radiotherapy and medication than surgery. Jennifer was therefore able to receive input from a world renowned specialist who helped her feel secure that she was following the best possible treatment plan.
In their own words: two more women share their stories
“The report from the Best Doctors breast cancer specialist recommended surgery. My own surgeon had encouraged me to find out everything I could before I made any decisions and she said she was thankful that I had done my research and had such a valuable resource as Best Doctors to assist me in making an informed decision. The Best Doctors report gave me detailed information on the pros and cons, eliminating the need to research hundreds of websites on my own.” – Sherri
“For me, Best Doctors has been a huge blessing. When I called them for assistance it was immediate and caring. My pathology results were redone by an outside consultant so I could be sure the diagnosis was accurate. The Best Doctors specialist who reviewed these results put it into a format that was easy for me to read and to understand. He also confirmed the treatment recommended by my doctors was correct. All my questions were answered and I know that, should I have any other concerns, Best Doctors will be there to assist me.” – Johanna
