Best Doctors®

If you are faced with a medical condition, trying to sort through the maze of information can be as stressful as the diagnosis itself.

With critical illness insurance or personal health insurance from Sun Life Financial, you can get access to Best Doctors – an international physician network that can help you understand your medical condition and treatment options.1

When you’re facing the uncertainty of a medical condition, Best Doctors offers services to give you the information you need to make more informed decisions about your healthcare. Best Doctors can help you get:

  • The right information
  • The right diagnosis
  • The right treatment

While your critical illness insurance or personal health insurance coverage is in place, you can access Best Doctors services if you suspect you have a medical condition. You don’t need to make a claim to access the services.
