Second Opinions Q & A

What is a second opinion?

After you’ve visited a doctor, you might have many questions as you mentally process the information. You may want the opinion of another specialist or doctor to help you make the right choices for your healthcare.

This is called a second opinion. After visiting one doctor, when you visit another doctor for the same health problems, you’re seeking a second opinion.

Second opinions are often an important part of your healthcare and aren’t just reserved for more serious health conditions like cancer.Even if both medical opinions are similar or the same, the process can still give you significant reassurance, confidence, and peace of mind that you’re on the right path with your health.

Why would I consider a second opinion?

Many people seek medical second opinions to learn more about an illness, treatment option, or prognosis.

A second opinion can also be particularly helpful when:

  • You’re deciding about a risky or costly test or treatment, like a surgery
  • You’re unclear how well a test or treatment might work
  • You’d like more information about your options
  • You’re unsure about how to get a diagnosis
  • You have several medical problems
  • You’re not responding to a particular treatment as expected
  • You’ve lost confidence in your current health care provider
