Why consider a Second Opinion?
A different specialist and Consultant cardiologist may find a different diagnosis, offer a different opinion as to your available treatment choices or confirm that the findings and treament journey suggested is the right option.
There are many factors which affect a Physician's opinion. This ranges from their overall experience and exposure in their speciality to the information at hand about the condition which sometimes may not always be all there at that time to the nature of the conversation and interaction quality between the physician and the patient. Knowing all the options for a patient is key.
It is so important to understand the risks and benefits of each option and tailor the treatment approach according to the individuals circumstances, lifestyle and expectations.
A second opinion can allay doubts and confirm the chosen treatment plan is right for a particular individual. Conversely, if an alternative is a better suited option, then the treatment journey can be accordingly altered.
