Second Opinion Services

Second opinion refers to the evaluation of diagnoses and treatments by a second physician in order to further the patient's understanding of their condition and aid in selecting the most appropriate treatment.

Second Opinion Services for Outpatients (by appointment only)

For outpatients who have received a full explanation of their medical condition at a health care center other than Keio University Hospital, we offer consultation regarding the diagnoses and treatments provided by their physician. The opinion thus offered is intended to aid the patient and their physician in determining the most appropriate course of treatment. Please note that to receive a second opinion you are required to first obtain a referral letter from your physician, and that no examinations or treatments are administered during consultation,.
