Second Opinions

We know a cancer diagnosis is a very serious matter. If you’ve received a cancer diagnosis from your physician or a doctor at another facility, we would be happy to provide a second opinion to double-check your diagnosis.

Asking for a second opinion is a common practice. It can give you additional information about your diagnosis and treatment options, and help you feel more confident about your health care choices. The oncology physicians at Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center can provide you with this second opinion.

We will review the test results your doctor has already gathered. We may order additional tests that may shed more light on what is happening within your body. Finally, we will share our opinion with you and, with your permission, discuss our opinion with your current doctor.

Getting a second opinion doesn’t mean that you don’t trust your doctor. In fact, your doctor will completely understand your need to be certain and support your decision.

If you’re anxious about a recent cancer diagnosis and would like one of our oncologists to review your case, please contact us at (440) 205-5755.
