Second opinions with in the same medical facility

beat it

Recommended Posts

here's my humble opinion..

I had a HMO and was permitted a 2nd opinion.. but it had to be with the same hospital/group. They were part of a tumor board so I felt that it would be an authentic "2nd opinion" but it wasn't.. they really tend to just agree with each other.

In my case this was diasterous and I was given the wrong treatment for my case. It wasn't until I moved to a cancer center that I was given accurate information and treatment.

I had to fight and fight for a 2nd opinion out of my "area" but in my case it may have saved me. If you can get one I would highly recommend it.. you have nothing to lose by looking for an objective opinion and everything to gain.

good luck.. Tami
