What is Second Medical Opinion

A second medical opinion is when another doctor is asked to provide an independent opinion on a medical problem and its management. This may help to provide a more comprehensive perspective to help you make an informed decision.

A Second Medical Opinion Can Help You:

Better understand your diagnosis and be in control of your healthcare needs

Have peace of mind by confirming your diagnosis and recommended treatment

Evaluate alternate treatment options more effectively

When You May Need a Second Medical Opinion

  • For serious or complex/rare medical conditions: It may be a good idea to seek a second medical opinion if you have a critical medical condition such as cancer, or if you suffer from complex/rare medical conditions where treatment options and outcomes may be varied.

  • For high risk treatments: You may want to consider a second medical opinion for high risk surgeries or treatment that could expose you to severe consequences. Discussing all the options available with more than one specialist may prove to be more reassuring for you.

  • For all types of treatments and diagnosis: If you want to confirm your diagnosis and better understand your treatment options, we can help provide the peace of mind.
