How To Locate A Doctor For A Second Opinion


Next »


If you have a type of insurance plan that allows you to use any doctor, or if you are uninsured, you can locate a doctor for a second opinion through:

  • Your primary care physician
  • Health professionals
  • Hospitals
  • Medical schools
  • Disease specific nonprofit organizations
  • Support groups
  • Family and friends
  • The Internet

If you are restricted by your insurance policy as to the doctors you can see,  look to the insurer to help you locate a specialist for a second opinon. If you're not satisfied with the permitted doctors, negotiate for more choice.

If you cannot find an appropriate doctor in your area, consider traveling to a medical center and seeing a specialist there.

NOTE: If you have your health insurance through your employer, check to see if your employer has a program to help you find an appropriate doctor for a second opinion.
