Get a second opinion from a cancer specialist
There’s a lot to think about when you’re facing a cancer diagnosis and deciding on a treatment plan. Getting a second opinion not only provides more information about your condition, but it may also increase your confidence in your care plan.
If you’re looking for help with a second opinion, we help match you with the right specialist. Our caring staff will work with you to secure an appointment and collect your medical records. Ask if a virtual care (e.g, telehealth or online) visit is an option for your second opinion consultation.
