If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you may want to get a second opinion from another physician before you begin treatment. A second opinion is an essentially good idea if you feel uncertain about the proposed treatment.
Even if you like your doctor and trust his or her treatment plan, you should still consider getting another opinion, not only to confirm the diagnosis, but more important, to make sure you are aware of every available treatment. Talking to another specialist can empower you to make decisions based on fully understanding all of your options.
At VMOC, our team of experts offers consultations for newly diagnosed patients seeking a second opinion about their treatment options. Our goal is to give you enough information so you and your family feel comfortable taking the next step in managing and treating the cancer.
