Second Opinions Whilst At Home
Our second opinion programme offers parents access to the senior team at the DCEz.
If you are facing a difficult treatment decision for a diffuse midline glioma, having a second opinion from a world-class academic medical centre specialising in the disease can provide valuable guidance and peace of mind.
The process is simple, convenient and completely confidential. We gather the medical records from you, conduct the review, and discuss options with you. Since everything is done remotely, there is no need to travel to Zurich.
The fee for the service has been discounted below many other comparable 2nd opinion hospitals to try to support parents with their expenses, and is CHF350.
Please be aware that most insurance plans currently do not cover the cost of online second opinions.
Our remote second opinion tool can be very helpful if:
- You want a second opinion on your child’s diagnosis
- You want a second opinion on recommendations for clinical trials or treatment options
The time required to process a second opinion request varies depending on how quickly we are able to collect the relevant medical records.
Do NOT use this service if you need immediate treatment guidance.
