Being diagnosed with a life threatening condition can be like suddenly landing in hostile foreign territory. At times like this, it helps to have an expert guide. The Health Concierge Service can help. Delivered by MedExtra Inc., the Health Concierge Service is a made in Canada solution designed to supplement the Canadian healthcare system. It bridges the gap between the care you would want if you were seriously ill and what our healthcare system is currently structured to provide.

How the Health Concierge Service works
The MedExtra team of experienced doctors and nurses deliver medical, tactical, and emotional support— before, during and after diagnosis. Assistance throughout the journey is key—and it’s one of the factors that make Health Concierge Service much more than a medical second opinion service. The MedExtra team can help:
accelerate the diagnosis
facilitate state-of-the-art treatment and follow up
facilitate a smooth return-to-work
provide clarity, continuity of care, and emotional support
Knowing the Health Concierge Service is there from the first suspicion that there may be a critical illness through to diagnosis, treatment and beyond is invaluable. From the moment the call is made to the Health Concierge Service, each individual has a dedicated Care Manager who guides them every step of the way. The MedExtra brand of customer service results in personalized, attentive, empathetic, and detail oriented care.
