Expert advice from the world's best doctors
Are you uncertain about your diagnosis or struggling to get one? Do you need help understanding your medical condition or are you having doubts about a treatment plan or surgery?
Expert Medical Opinion is designed to help you better understand any medical condition you may be experiencing and provide an expert opinion for any prescribed treatment plan or impending surgery you may have scheduled.
You can have any physical condition reviewed by an expert, such as an injury or illness that affects your way of life, from heart conditions and cancer right through to back pain, skin conditions and severe migraines. As an Accuro member, you have access to the top medical experts in the world included as part of your policy.
The doctors that other doctors trust most
Since 1989, Teledoc has conducted the largest, ongoing peer survey in the medical industry, and the only Gallup-certified polling process of its kind, to identify the doctors that other doctors trust the most. The result of the Teledoc poll is a proprietary database of leading physicians — free from commercial and financial bias.
Teledoc does not pay expert physicians to vote or to be included in our database, nor do they pay us. A doctor cannot apply to become an expert; the only way for a doctor to be selected to the database is to be nominated and voted on by other experts.
For each case, Teledoc identifies the expert(s) from the network best qualified to work on your case. Specialists are typically affiliated with world-renowned hospitals across the U.S.A but the current network contains over 53,000 physicians worldwide, representing more than 450 medical specialties and subspecialties.
Independent and confidential
Virtual Clinic is powered by Teledoc which means that all Virtual Clinic services are completely independent and confidential. Accuro will never see any of your communication with or results from the Virtual Clinic unless you choose to send it to us.
