It is important for all patients to have adequate information regarding their medical problem so they can make an informed treatment decision instead of one based in fear.
When I have been asked by a patient in the past whether they should seek a second opinion, I encourage them to do so. Even if they choose to have a different surgeon. I think it is critical for a patient to feel comfortable with their treating doctors and confident in the treatment plan. I believe that if a doctor is confident in their treatment advice and has excellent bedside manner then it should not matter whether a patient seeks a second, third, or forth opinion for that matter.
I offer second opinions via Skype and TeleHealth and can coordinate this with your GP or with you personally. Similar to the traditional consultation, you would require a GP referral, all results such as relevant pathology, imaging x-rays, and medical history.
For the cancer patient, your case will be further reviewed with a multidisciplinary team which includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, other surgeons and allied health providers to consider all possible treatment options. If you would like further information regarding a second opinion, please contact us today, as we would love to care for you.
