Advocate for Your Health Care

A doctor’s visit can be intimidating. Here’s a professional who has received years of specialized training in areas beyond most of our comprehension. And you are paying them a good sum to tell you what to do.

It’s hard to voice a question or concern in that situation. But speaking up for yourself is critical to taking control over your medical outcomes.

No matter how well trained a doctor is, what they offer you is an opinion. In most other situations, we have no problem asking for a second opinion.

For big purchases like a house, we get several loan offers. If something is wrong with our car’s transmission, we take it to a second mechanic.

We feel patients should be just as empowered to take control of their health care decisions. The mission of Purview is to empower patients and give them the tools to advocate for themselves when it comes to their medical images.
