How it Works
Member contacts Best Doctors via web, app, or phone.
A Member Advocate, a registered nurse, conducts a thorough intake with the member and begins the process of medical records collection. The medical information is used to create a comprehensive clinical summary.
Using cutting-edge research and best practices, a peer-recognized expert provides diagnostic and treatment guidance based on the member's best health outcome.
We build an in-depth report outlining diagnostic status, treatment recommendations, and evidence to support the guidance, with a follow-up from the Member Advocate. Information can be shared with the member's treating physician, if desired.
