The benefits of a second opinion
After reviewing your case history, MRIs and/or X-rays, Dr. Jonathan Godin can provide you with:
- Additional knowledge about your diagnosis
- Additional knowledge about your treatment options
With this additional information, patients are able to compare diagnosis and treatment results between multiple physicians and confirm the diagnosis and treatment plan are the best option for the patient.
Most physicians welcome a second opinion from a respected peer. A good physician understands a patient’s right to be well-informed in order to understand their healthcare choices. Some physicians even encourage their patients to contact a medical second opinion service because a different doctor may determine a different diagnosis and/or treatment plan.
