Second opinion

How to get a second opinion?

If you have already seen a surgeon or team and would like a second opinion please contact us for an appointment. For such cases you should ideally let the first clinician / team know that you are coming to see us for a second opinion. For the best and speediest outcomes in such cases please could you send us your previous test results, medical reports and X-rays/CT scans etc prior to your appointment.

Abroad patients

For patients who may be admitted abroad and wish a second opinion from Mr Purkayastha and his team please let us know and we can arrange a virtual consultation on line and even at your bedside via skype, facetime, viber or tango.

For non-English speaking patients please let us know which language you speak and we can arrange a translator at our end if you do not have someone who speaks English.
