Many people seek a second opinion as a way to reassure themselves that they are making the right decisions and/or getting the best treatment plan possible. Second opinions eliminate the “what ifs” and provide patients with peace of mind and confidence in their cancer care.
Our Oncologists are always prepared to provide second opinion consultations to patients and their loved ones about their diagnosis or current treatment and offer suggestions regarding all available options. An advantage for choosing Contemporary Oncology Team is its commitment to advanced cancer treatment and clinical trials as well as a positive and proactive attitude to fighting cancer.
Second Opinion works both ways. Contemporary Oncology Team’s own patients may seek second opinion if they need reassurance. If they so wish, we would help guide them to a treatment center or physician specializing in the treatment of their condition. We would prepare the appropriate medical reports they would need for the second opinion visit.
Often, second opinions confirm the original diagnosis or course of treatment. However, in many cases, a second opinion may highlight new or additional options that may result in improved, prognosis, better quality of life or reduced side effects.
