Dayton Physicians Network Accepts New Patients For A Second Opinion Or Self-Referral

Second Opinions

When you are fighting a disease like cancer, you want to feel confident that you are receiving the most targeted treatments. You also want to be sure that the treatment is delivered by a team of experts. We offer that expertise at Dayton Physicians Network. We know that a cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event. Many people experience a variety of emotions, including an over-whelming sense of needing to be sure…absolutely sure that you have chosen the best treatment approach for you.

Once you receive your doctor’s opinion about a diagnosis and treatment, you may decide to get another doctor’s advice before you begin treatment. This is called getting a second opinion and it can help you make a more informed decision about your care. A second opinion can confirm or perhaps suggest changes to your doctor’s proposed treatment plan. A second opinion can also reassure you and your loved ones that you have explored every option available and have all of your questions answered. All you have to do is ask another specialist to review your case.

At Dayton Physicians Network, we know that some people find it uncomfortable to request a second opinion. It may help you to know that it is common for patients to seek out second opinions. You will also find that most physicians welcome another doctor’s view. It is always best to let your doctor know that you prefer to have a second opinion.
