Hearing and sharing our members’ health care stories is a distinct honor. Their personal experiences perfectly illustrate the complexities of navigating the system and the many variables that impact outcomes—whether it’s geographic location or the specific medical condition they face. And while the journey is different for everyone, there’s one thread that remains consistent: expert medical guidance makes all the difference, and at the end of the day, we all just want to feel better and live our best lives.

Beth has struggled with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) for most of her life. Getting a correct diagnosis for her symptoms was a challenge. It devastated Beth emotionally, living with this disorder and having no real answers. 

One day, her treating gynecologist determined that it was not just PCOS, but that there was also a potential tumor. She suggested a hysterectomy. 

Recognizing this as a major surgery to have at a very young age, Beth refused to accept this as an answer. 

That’s when Beth’s business partner suggested, “Why don’t you try Grand Rounds? They do second opinions, it’s what they do. It doesn’t cost you anything; just try!”

Finding out about Grand Rounds changed Beth’s life completely. 

“Customer service is outstanding. I felt like I mattered.” Beth said, “They matched me with a provider that diagnosed me 100%. She suggested medication, continuing the course that I was on, as well as weight loss.”

The Grand Rounds expert opinion helped Beth avoid an unnecessary surgery that would’ve changed her life.
