Second Opinions

Some health plans ask for a second opinion from a board certified physician in the same area as the impending surgery. Beneficial or not! Depends on what you are having done. Below are listed some questions you may have when getting a second opinion.

• What is the benefit of my getting a second opinion?

• What if the second physician’s opinion differs from the first?

• Have you actually had all the tests, visits, x-rays, done that are
necessary to give you an honest second opinion?

• Do you have a case manager or coordinator that you can
discuss your options with?

The above are just questions that I am posing to you. Informational and hoping they will stir up your thinking cap.
