Best Doctors(TM)

If you are diagnosed with a serious medical condition, Best DoctorsTM provides a free list of the best medical specialists in your area, country, or throughout the world. These medical specialists work with local medical staff to better diagnose and treat your medical condition. The services of the Best DoctorsTM professionals are not necessarily free, depending upon provincial and national health insurance plans. But adequate critical illness and life insurance plans will provide much needed cash to pay for the best treatment that money can buy. Best DoctorsTM has a worldwide database of over 50,000 doctors recognized by their peers as the top specialists in their fields of expertise. This benefit is included at no extra cost.
