Requesting a Cancer Teleconsultation

What is a Cancer Teleconsultation?

A cancer consultation is currently available for breast, lung, liver, and pancreatic cancer. Regardless of your geographic location, cancer teleconsulting gives you the ability to collaborate remotely over a secure video with a top specialist to gain a second opinion on a diagnosis or prior to arrival at the destination.

How does our cancer teleconsultation service work?

  • It’s simple, all you need is a computer, a smartphone, or an electronic tablet.
  • You simply complete an online and secure teleconsultation request and specify your preferred day, time, hospital/clinic, and or surgeon (if known), otherwise, we will assign a top specialist based on your specific request.
  • A patient navigator will confirm availability with the surgeon and/or propose an alternate time.  Your surgeon will review your medical file in advance of your discussion.
  • You receive a link to access to connect via mobile, tablet, or desktop to your surgeon and have a 1:1 discussion.  This is your opportunity to ask your surgeon anything you want.
  • On completion, you will then receive the surgeon’s recommendations, confirmed pricing, and a copy of your video transcript.

Teleconsultation services offer you many advantages:
