Do you know when to get a second opinion?

One of the most confusing times in your life might happen when you receive a new medical diagnosis. Making medical decisions is not always easy, especially when you must choose between treatment options. As much as you may trust your doctor in New York City, do you really want to rely on their professional opinion alone to determine the outcome of your situation? Or would you be better off getting a second opinion? 

No amount of trust can prevent medical errors. Your doctor is human and can make mistakes. According to John Hopkins Medicine, medical errors kill more than 250,000 people annually. Many medical mistakes are preventable. One way you can avoid mistakes in the care you receive is to get a second opinion. 

Every year, doctors in the United States misdiagnosis 12 million people, states Fox News. There is no way to predict when a misdiagnosis will occur. However, getting additional professional opinions from other experts in the medical field can significantly lower the risk. 

Getting professional opinions can be complicated and expensive, especially when health insurance is involved. You should not let your insurer or costs keep you from protecting yourself. Take the following considerations in mind to know when an additional opinion is necessary. 

  •        You are not sure if you really need the procedure.
  •        You do not trust your doctor’s advice.
  •        Are alternative treatment options?
  •        You are not sure about the expected outcome. 

There is nothing wrong getting additional expert recommendations. Doing so allows you to play a more active role in ensuring you get the right scope of care and treatment. It also gives you additional opportunities to learn about your treatment options so you can make the most informed decision for your situation.
