How To Locate A Doctor For A Second Opinion


« Previous


If you don?t have the money to pay a Specialist For a Second Opinion: Go to a clinic at a university medical center or at the best hospital in your area. There may also be other clinics in your area to consider. You can locate them through your local disease specific non-profit organization or religious organization.

Your primary care doctor may also know of a doctor who would be willing to do him or her a favor and give you a second opinion. If you see the second doctor, keep the relationship between the two of them in mind. The second doctor will not want to contradict a friend. Remind the doctor as politely as you can that you are seeking a truly independent, second opinion.

If you do have money to pay for at least part of the doctor?s services: See Sources To Help Locate A Specialist For A Second Opinion, above.
