Testimonials

CONTEXT

Jason, a young man in his early 20s, had a headache practically every day for over a year. The pain was extremely intense and had a profound impact on his life. His doctor diagnosed him with migraines and prescribed him medicine. While it did help to reduce the intensity and frequency of his headaches, he still didn’t feel convinced that it wasn’t something more serious.

SOLUTION THANKS TO BEST DOCTORS

Jason contacted Best Doctors, and a leading international neurologist looked into his case. The specialist gave him exactly the assurance he needed: yes, he was having migraines and, no, it wasn’t anything more serious. Jason received an expert report with detailed advice on the various alternative medicines as well as other information on coping strategies and effective therapies.

CONTEXT

Kelly works long hours sat at her desk – on average, more than 9 hours a day. She suffers severe and frequent back pain. Kelly’s GP suspected she might have a condition called ankylosing spondylitis, which is a type of arthritis caused by an autoimmune disease, and prescribed her painkillers to help. Kelly managed her back pain with medicine and visits to an osteopath. However, it wasn’t long before her condition worsened. Unable to sleep, her GP sent her to a rheumatologist who recommended an anti-TNF treatment.

SOLUTION THANKS TO BEST DOCTORS

Kelly got in touch with Best Doctors to make sure her diagnosis was right and to confirm the possible treatment options. The world expert, after examining Kelly’s medical notes, recommended an MRI to confirm her initial diagnosis. He also recommended further tests to rule out any other less obvious diagnoses.

Not only did the expert confirm Kelly’s diagnosis, he also agreed that the recommended MRI confirmed ankylosing spondylitis and that anti-TNF treatment was indeed the right treatment for her.
