Get a Second Opinion
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, a second opinion can offer you peace of mind or additional treatment options. We follow MD Anderson’s model of care, ensuring that a pathologist verifies the diagnoses of all our patients.
Some of the most common reasons patients seek second opinions are to:
- Confirm a diagnosis
- Seek out a specialist or expert opinion
- Explore additional treatment options
A second opinion can be a game-changer for patients. While it is rare for a diagnosis to change from malignant to benign, a second opinion may reveal other information. Our team verifies whether your staging is correct, your tumor size is correct and your overall assessment is correct. All of these factors can affect which treatment options you are offered. Our doctors are happy to assume your care, or can work with a team of physicians in your area.
To request a second opinion, schedule an appointment by calling 1.844.MDA.BAPTIST or completing an online appointment request.
