Shane McCarthy's Story
66-year-old Shane McCarthy often feel tired, chest pain, decreased appetite, a racing in her heartbeat, pain on the other side of her abdomen and shortness of breath during her routine activity (like whenever she is climbing the two flights of stairs at her office). It even got to a point that she finds it very hard to do any of her routine physical activities. She tried to get diagnosis for this symptoms and was told she has hypothyroidism and she would get better after being on thyroid meds. After 8 months when she continues to get worse despite her normal thyroid levels, she decided to check with another specialist and then third one. All the efforts proved abortive and reaching nowhere.
Shane’s cousin, Ricardo, visited her on a faithful day and Shane explained her health condition to him. Ricardo took it upon himself to find a solution to his cousin’s situation. He was able to reach out to Eminent Physicians remote second opinion medical service that connected them to a world class specialist doctor, Dr. James Wilson, for his opinion on her symptoms. After series of test and with available medical records, Dr. Wilson was able to accurately diagnose Shane of Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) —the blood vessels that transports blood to the lungs from the heart become hard and narrow, meaning the heart has to put in more effort in order to pump blood. As time goes on, the heart becomes weak and cannot perform its job anymore resulting to heart failure. All the process was so easy that made Shane think why didn’t she come to this service before.
For the first time in a considerable number of years, Shane had answers and the reason behind her health issues. She was also provided available treatment for her health issues, and even discussed about the new research and prognosis. She showed the consultation to her physicians and they were agreeable with the current management proposed. Finally, she was relieved of her discomfort.
In Shane’s words, “Eminent Physicians Second Opinion medical service showed me that world class medical service is always at my reach irrespective of where I am. Communication was perfect and very fast. With this service, the information reaches me in a few days as opposed to weeks that I once had to wait. The team in-charge of my treatment kept me updated as regards any information on my health.”
"Getting good health care services can be impossible at times but with Eminent Physician second opinion medical service, it's much easier. This service has connected me to different patients that have found getting true expertise in health care services impossible." said Dr. James Wilson.
