Why an online consultation?
The technological innovation has made possible, by Internet, to access an impressive amount of neurological and scientific data.
The purpose of the online consultation online is to ask, in short times, a first or a second opinion to the expert neurologist as a pathology of the central and/or peripheral nervous system. Digital technology makes it possible to share with few clicks the whole medical and radiological documentation. For this reason, it is not necessary to come to Switzerland. Naturally, if you decide to personally come to the medical cabinet you will be the most welcome.
The opinion of different experts is never useless, especially if the clinical case is complex and there are not univocal results as the diagnoses and treatments. The studies have shown that a second opinion can provide a second diagnosis or a different therapeutic decision in more than the 50% of the cases.
A second opinion can allow the patient to have a deeper knowledge of the illness and its treatment. The question of a second opinion doesn’t mean to discredit the general practitioner or the expert previously consulted. It is also possible that a second evaluation confirm the results of the first one. In this case, the patient will have certainty of the treatments already proposed. You might discuss the possibility of a second neurological opinion with your physician of family or expert. It is a common practice in medicine and neurology. Although a web consultation could be easier than a consultation in the cabinet, the online consultation will entirely found on the data and the documents that you will produce without a physical examination. Nevertheless, an experienced neurologist will make 8 times out of 10 a correct diagnosis only on the basis of the clinical history. Indeed, it is possible, with focused questions, to investigate all the neurological systems and to locate the lesions. Every part of the central and peripheral nervous system speaks with its own symptoms.
