When faced with complicated health issues and the stakes are high, you may not be able to afford a second chance; thus it is critical to get a second medical opinion to challenge or validate your diagnosis and/or treatment.

Study from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center showed that second opinion led to treatment modifications: overall, 52% of the patients evaluated had one or more changes in their recommendations for surgery. One of the most effective way to come to a better health decision is to confront different expert opinions.
