Asking for a second opinion

The doctors and other healthcare providers that you work with Woodbury no doubt went through years of schooling as well as extensive training to hold positions they currently do. All of that experience should be enough to make you feel completely confident in any diagnosis or opinion that they give, right? We here at Futterman, Sirotkin and Seinfeld, LLP have worked with many clients who have had to suffer due to a provider misdiagnosing their conditions or failing to identify them altogether. In these cases, their troubles may have been avoided by simply seeking a second opinion.

Asking for a second opinion may seem difficult, particularly if you have an established relationship with your primary care physician. You may worry that by seeking another opinion regarding a diagnosis, he or she may be offended. However, your doctor welcome any outside input due to the fact that he or she may be able to use information given from another provider to increase his or her own knowledge.

If you are concerned about the cost of seeking a second opinion, know that most insurance plans will still cover at least a portion of your visit provided that it is deemed medically necessary. If you are a Medicare subscriber, it has a policy to pay for 80 percent of the cost of a second visit consultation.

The healthcare publication Medscape shares five situations in which you should consider getting a second opinion:

  •          If you are given a cancer diagnosis
  •          If your doctor recommends surgery
  •          If your doctor cannot give a definitive diagnosis
  •          If your prescribed treatment is not working
  •          If you have been diagnosed with a rare disease or condition

You can learn more about avoiding the potential of a misdiagnosis by continuing to read through our site.
