“The Ferrari of Medicine”

Only taking a select handful of patients each year, this doctor and his army of medical detectives offer an unpreceden­ted service.

-

On average, patients spend fifteen to thirty minutes with their doctor, whether they suffer from a sprained ankle or a life- threatenin­g disease and all treatments are failing.

No matter the severity of the situation, doctors only have enough time to ask a handful of questions and skim through the records he has ( usually a fraction of the patient’s total history). He then goes off distant memories of medical school to recommend treatment options, and the patient sets off down the same old rabbit trails. Most patients can’t comprehend this. ” That’s it?” they ask. “There must be other options. Does the doctor even know why I’m suffering?”

When patients like this are facing serious medical situations, are they really getting the most out of modern medicine? Ask anyone who has watched a family member go through one of these situations, and they will intuitivel­y tell you: the answer is a resounding NO.

How did we get here?

First, doctors don’t have the bandwidth to properly dissect our cases. As medicine becomes more specialize­d patients see more and more specialist­s; their records are scattered between dozens of practices. Rarely does a doctor’s staff have the resources and time to request all the records from the different hospitals and clinics and then compile them for the doctor to review. It should happen, but hardly ever does.

Second, doctors don’t have enough free time outside of clinic to stay up- to- date on all of the latest breakthrou­ghs. One person may suffer or even die from a disease, while another patient with the same disease— and a more informed doctor— may recover easily. This happens far too often because doctors do not have the time to stay completely up- to- date on potential cures for every disease they see. They rarely have time to read even one or two journals.

With as busy as doctors are, no single doctor could ever keep up with the volume of new informatio­n coming out every day. As oncologist Lucy Langer, MD states, “It’s nearly impossible for an oncologist to keep up with all the informatio­n. In fact, it’s not ‘ nearly’ impossible— it IS impossible.”

And what’s worse: trusting pa

tients have no idea

This untold health care crisis leaves millions of people each year with life- threatenin­g conditions, no effective treatment plan, and only limited help from their doctor.

When their primary doctor runs out of standard options, patients often start the “specialist shuffle.” As the clock ticks on a deadly diagnosis, they move from one specialist to another, hoping one can pinpoint the issue and make an effective plan.

Most people in this situation, of course, jump into self- research mode. People are used to finding every answer with a quick google search, but when it comes to finding accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans, amateur blog posts and ill- sourced websites won’t cut it. The real informatio­n is in top- rated medical journals and exclusive scientific websites, which are guarded by paywalls so the general public doesn’t have access.

In reality, working treatments are often available, somewhere in the world. The key is to find what is working.

This takes medical experts who have the time to do a deep dive into case as well as undergo a massive research effort by trained medical clinicians and researcher­s.

This crisis is what led one doctor to reimagine medicine and create a world- class, life- saving research service.

Even as a practicing MD, Dr. Trent Talbot couldn’t find the answers he needed in the modern medical system, and he realized how catastroph­ic this problem is for millions of sick and dying people. When the same cause— overworked and under- informed doctors— nearly ruined his grandfathe­r’s life, Dr. Trent knew it was time to act.

So he started the MediSearch Institute and an unparallel­ed medical research service for people with complex and life- threatenin­g conditions.

He says, “I’ve never felt a worse feeling than getting bad news from a doctor. After the initial fear and stress, over worst- case scenarios, you feel this huge wave of anxiety and uncertaint­y. You wonder if you’ll get the best treatment available, or if there are other,

better options. It’s terrible, and I never want another patient to live with that feeling.”

When Dr. Talbot decides to take on a patient’s case, he assembles a personal army of doctors and medical researcher­s to scour the globe for informatio­n and opinions from world- renowned experts. Knowing that the MediSearch detectives are evaluating every single viable option, his patients never need to live with that fear or anxiety. And once they’ve worked with the team to choose the best treatment pathway, their very own MediSearch client advocate walks with the patients as they navigate the healthcare terrain.

Instead of getting one opinion from one doctor after a thirty minute visit,, MediSearch patients have a team of doctors put in over 500 “MD Hours” on their specific cases, as well as ten to fifteen opinions from world- renowned experts. He and his team dedicate as much time as needed to each and every patient, even if that means they lose the chance to take on more clients.

Here’s what other leading doctors have to say about the MediSearch Institute:

“The MediSearch Institute model is disrupting the healthcare industry. It’s a fascinatin­g concept that gives patients an unpreceden­ted level of care.”— Amin J. Mirahadi, M. D., Radiation Oncology at Cedars- Sinai

Service at this level can be costly. However, when life or death is at stake and the doctor hits a dead end, effective treatments are worth any investment.

No one could dream of finding this level of personaliz­ation in today’s “factory medicine” culture. The MediSearch Institute offers hope because it properly utilizes the medical breakthrou­ghs made every day for conditions like cancer, autoimmune diseases, and other chronic diseases, tailoring each treatment for the unique person behind each case.

MediSearch can deliver its stunning results because of its relentless focus on what Dr. Talbot calls “The MediSearch Process.” That Is their internal system for never leaving a stone unturned as they identify the best treatments and experts. Hundreds of details go into it, and as the founder, Dr. Talbot is a strict enforcer of this process.

He says: “So many people need medical care that is more up- to- date and personaliz­ed than the run- of- the- mill treatments their doctors offer. My team and I have created a place for them to make sure they get the best, most personaliz­ed care medicine offers. We don’t just offer informatio­n; we give our clients peace of mind.”
