Second Opinions at USA Health

A second opinion can confirm the initial diagnosis or recommendation you received, or it may simply provide you with more options.

Second Opinions at USA Health

Asking for a second opinion can be intimidating. Patients might feel as though they are second guessing their physician, but that is not necessarily the case. At USA Health, all of our doctors have the same goal—to provide the most effective treatments possible to patients.

A second opinion can confirm the initial diagnosis or recommendation you received, or it may simply provide you with more options. Regardless of the outcome, a second opinion can help you to feel more comfortable and informed when facing serious medical illnesses.

Second Opinions at the Mitchell Cancer Institute

The Mitchell Cancer Institute (MCI) is always available to provide second opinions for people who have been diagnosed with cancer and are seeking alternative opinions. No physician referral is needed.

After you submit your medical information, we arrange a visit with a physician, nurse practitioner and nurse to review your care options and offer recommendations.

How To Request A Second Opinion

Talk to your doctor about any concerns you may have. Your doctor needs to know that you are requesting a second opinion in order to provide a different physician with all the necessary information to evaluate your medical condition or history. Your current physician’s office will send your medical records to your secondary physician’s office via fax, mail or email.

Insurance

Please contact your insurance provider to discuss whether or not a second opinion is covered by your plan. Some providers require a recommendation or may not cover a second opinion. Be thorough in your questions, and don’t hesitate to advocate for yourself.
