Rebecca Bechhold MD, provides a few example experiences of how doctors deal with second opinions:
It seems to me that there's a reluctance to ask for a second opinion when it comes to the time when our specialist says it's time to treat CLL. Is that really the case? I would have thought that with CLL, where frequently the best treatment option is not to treat (Watch and Wait), more people would seek a second opinion, particularly when the condition is so heterogeneous.
What do you think?
