What is Second Medical opinion?
A second medical opinion is an evaluation of your health by other than your treating doctor. It is when a doctor (with similar specialty) expert in their field of medicine, that is not your treating physician, provides comments on treating physician’s diagnosis or treatment plan by reviewing the medical records or by evaluating the patient clinically. He may provide more information about the disease or offer an alternative diagnosis or other treatment options.
