Tingly Sensation with Time to Resolve
The Case: Pamela felt a “tingly” feeling down her back out of the blue. After visiting a neurologist and having several tests, she was diagnosed with MS. She was advised to promptly start on a strong medication involving steroids.
Resolution: Pamela reached out to one of our experts who confirmed her diagnosis but recommended different medications and a less invasive routine to mitigate the pain.
Biopsy Redone, Life Saved
The Case: Stephen was told he had a non aggressive, low-grade cancer after several tests and a biopsy. His urologist and oncologist couldn’t agree on a treatment plan, leaving Stephen overwhelmed by the decision.
Resolution: Our experts collected his records and re-did his pathology, discovering that the biopsy results had been read incorrectly. In fact, Stephen had a highly aggressive, high-risk cancer. Our expert provided two treatment recommendations and worked with Stephen to guide him down the right path.
Breaking the Cycle of Recurrent Pneumonia
The Case: Mr. K was in his early 70s with a history of hypertension and obesity. He developed pneumonia that continued despite continued testing and treatment.
Resolution: Our care team reviewed the test results and explained that low esophageal tone was leading to severe reflux and aspiration pneumonia—the existing treatment was doing more harm than good. New treatment was recommended including a weight loss plan.
Avoiding Unnecessary Surgery
The Case: A 55-60 year old woman with a prior history of breast cancer was found to have enlarged lymph nodes and lung nodules. An endobronchial needle biopsy did not show cancer, but her treating team planned an open lung biopsy to look for cancer.
Resolution: Our expert team assessed the case and diagnosed sarcoidosis, an autoimmune condition and halted further invasive testing. His treating doctors agreed and began a treatment that aligned with this new diagnosis.
