Why is a second opinion necessary for your medical diagnosis?
When it comes to health, there is no room for doubt. Medical Second Opinion (MSO), is a service that emerged to clear all doubts regarding diagnosis and treatment plans. Since doctors are not immune to making mistakes, getting opinions from more than one doctor can significantly reduce the risk of misdiagnosis, if not eliminate it entirely.
Medical second opinion refers to a patient’s act of requesting or seeking evaluation of his health condition by another physician or specialist to verify and confirm the diagnosis and treatment prescribed by the previous physician or to know an alternative treatment plan.
By seeking a second opinion, you:
Gain more knowledge of your condition and your options.
Confirm that your diagnosis is appropriate
Compare outcomes of the treatments you are offered
Confirm that the recommended treatment is appropriate
In fact, studies suggest the frequency of diagnostic errors is estimated between 5%-10%. This means patients get misdiagnosed in every 10 or 20 doctor’s appointments. We believe we can agree that health is too important to leave up to chance. Getting a second opinion to confirm your diagnosis can give you peace of mind.
Reducing the risk of misdiagnosis is not the only benefit MSO offers. As medical science advances, new treatment options emerge. As a result of that, there are several alternative treatment options for the same health problem. Getting a second opinion can help you decide which treatment is most suitable for your particular situation.
Communication between the doctor and the patient is key for a successful recovery. Unfortunately, sometimes patients and physicians can not get along. Patients may not feel comfortable with the doctor’s level of experience or feel that their physician is not listening to their questions and concerns or providing enough information for them to make an informed decision. Getting a second opinion from a different physician can clear the air.
