Many of our patients travel from all over the world to the Beverly Hills Cancer Center for the top treatment, the most advanced therapies, clinical trials, world-class doctors and state-of-the-art imaging center all under one roof. Because of this, your diagnosis and therapy takes place with greater speed, increasing the effectiveness and productivity of your treatment.
Obtaining a second opinion consultation
Asking for a second opinion is becoming routine, particularly when the diagnosis is cancer. Having a second opinion to confirm the diagnosis and the treatment plan can provide peace of mind that your diagnosis is correct, leading to the best treatment for your particular case. Our facility provides medical second opinions routinely for international patients who are aware of our reputation for being at the forefront of cancer treatment methods.
There are many reasons that residents from other countries seek a cancer diagnosis second opinion. Treatment within health care networks may differ and these patients want the benefit of an opinion free of institutional, or other cultural approaches, to cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Benefiting from a different perspective
Having a different perspective is one of the many reasons that we attract patients from all over the world. People facing a serious illness want options. They also want confirmation that the diagnosis is correct and that the proposed treatment plan includes the latest breakthroughs in treatment.
A consultation from one of our world renowned cancer specialists is sought by those who want additional information, to help them decide on treatment, particularly where there are several options offered. Medical second opinions are also very valuable where patients have several medical problems that could complicate cancer treatment. Our only focus is helping our patients who are dealing with cancer. We are completely specialized in the field and involved in promising and exciting clinical trials that are usually not known in other countries. Cutting edge treatment protocols are fully in use at the Beverly Hills Cancer Center.
You have a right to a second opinion
Everyone has the right and responsibility to get the best possible treatment for any illness or medical condition. When faced with a cancer diagnosis, a second opinion can provide confirmation that you are on the right track. Often times, a second opinion can result in a greater choice of treatment options and sometime can even result in a different diagnosis. You can advocate for yourself by acquiring as much information as possible so you feel confident in your treatment and those working with you.

International Patient Testimonial
I want to share the truly incredible experience I had at the Beverly Hills Cancer Center with anyone looking for cancer care. Every single person, I encountered during my treatment here, from the staff to the doctors, was knowledgable and helpful and truly cared for me — completely the opposite of what I experienced at the hospitals I visited back home in France.
I was recently diagnosed with Leukemia (CLL). I was so terrified, because Leukemia means cancer. I went to 3 French hospitals and they told me they could not do anything. I did not understand their answers or why they could not do anything or any treatment so I decided to learn about my Leukemia for myself.
I called my very close friend in California, who I have known for over 30 years, and he told me to go to the Beverly Hills Cancer Center, since they are known to be the best cancer treatment facility with the best doctors, and they will probably give me different solutions.
I called and they gave me an appointment with Dr. Eli Gabayan. Dr. Gabayan listened to me as I talked to him about my great fears and worries. He was so comforting and knowledgeable, and I don't know if he knows it, but his face and attitude relaxed me and made me feel secure. I asked him a lot of questions and he answered all of them in depth, which was very important to me. He was patient and caring, and I felt like he understood everything about me and what I needed, from treating my cancer to simply making me feel better and less scared about everything. In France, the doctors would just respond to me by saying "we don't know," which is the wrong answer to hear when you have Leukemia. You are scared for your life and you want to hear about being cured! Dr. Gabayan presented me with a few different treatment options that were specifically for me. I set up my appointment to start treatment and could not be happier with my decision. I was also impressed overall with the beautiful center and how easy they made everything for me, including help with getting a visa, and even help with getting 80% of my treatment covered by my French insurance company! I have already recommended 4 people in France with CLL to go to Beverly Hills Cancer Center. I could not be more thankful.
