What is Second Opinion?

The second opinion, in Speech and Swallow, sometimes loosely termed as window shopping for speech and swallow experts or clinics, is a process of asking for validation of or opinion about the current status, either of assessment, treatment plan, treatment process, or treatment progress. 

Who can take Second Opinion?

A second opinion may be sought by a patient's caretakers, patient, clinician, interdisciplinary rehabilitation, or a clinical seup. 

Why is it second?

Our intention is that right service be provided for all. We are not keen on being the only service providers in this segment, nor we wish you to leave your current service provider or think that we might siphon other clinicians patient load. We strictly stick to opinion only. We maintain transparent communiction between all the stakeholders.
