How Remote Second Opinion works
Remote Second Opinion gives you a direct connection with UCHealth physicians. Our specialists review your individual situation, answer your questions, and provide you with a comprehensive report you can share and discuss with your family and your local primary care physician.
Based on the medical second opinion you receive from us, you can decide to come to our facilities for treatment, or you can choose to stay in your hometown and receive treatment locally.
Once you have our second opinion information, you can request updated opinions as your condition changes.
