Expert Medical Opinion
The expert medical opinion service of Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin offers you access to our highly specialized physicians without having to make an appointment in one of our clinics or the need to travel. You can conveniently request your expert medical opinion online in just a few minutes. Charité has experts in all medical specialties, who will take over the detailed assessment of your case. If you have received an initial diagnosis and have specific medical questions, our physicians can independently review your medical documents, answer your questions or can indicate whether a planned surgery is recommended. The expert medical opinion is exclusively based on the medical reports and radiological images that you will submit with your request. After a thorough review, you will receive a written report that answers your medical questions, points out other treatment options, or recommends further examinations to confirm a diagnosis.
