After you’ve been diagnosed and your doctor has outlined your treatment, you may still have a nagging doubt: “What if my doctor is wrong”? No matter how much you like or trust your doctor, it’s natural to wonder if something was missed or if a new treatment is available. In fact, a recent study shows that 3 out of 10 diagnoses are inaccurate.
If you have any doubts, you should get a second opinion. Getting a second opinion is your right as a patient. The fact of the matter is that having the input of another expert makes sense.
Our experts at MedAdvo believe that doctors should never try to prevent you from getting a second opinion instead, they should encourage it. Second opinions are often really helpful because they offer reassurance. So what do you need to know about getting a second opinion?
If you have questions about your diagnosis and need help determining whether you need a second opinion, give us a call at our toll free number (855)-439-4300.
