Make a Difference
The diagnosis of a complex gynecological condition can be life changing. So why would you trust the first treatment plan that a physician gives you? We live in a world of healthcare innovation. That means that there are more options available than ever before regarding your GYN care. Even if it confirms the original recommendation, seeking a second opinion can give you the confidence you need to move forward with treatment knowing that you explored every option available.
The most common reasons why women show an interest in a second opinion are:
- Dissatisfaction with the proposed outcomes of their current treatment plan
- Not having enough information on their condition
- Feeling as though there are other options available
- Lack of confidence in their diagnosis
- Desire to maintain fertility
We always recommend getting a second opinion, but
especially for certain scenarios such as:
If you have been diagnosed with any of the following conditions or have been recommended any of the following treatments, seek a second opinion to ensure you get the best possible GYN care.
If your doctor recommends a “watch and wait” approach or tells you not to worry about your fibroids due to their size, seek a second opinion. Fibroids will grow over time and can begin to negatively impact other organs as well as future fertility options.
Problems with fertility could be caused by many different factors. Since GYN conditions like fibroids and endometriosis are so common, it is important to find a physician who will rule them out before proceeding with fertility treatments.
Many women who need a hysterectomy undergo an open abdominal surgery with a large incision and months of recovery. But there are better options out there. Skip the months of recovery and seek a second opinion to find out if you’re a candidate for a minimally invasive hysterectomy.
Even if you love and trust your primary care doctor or OB/GYN, a second opinion can confirm or deny your original diagnosis. A second opinion can grant you access to other types, levels and costs of treatment that your doctor may not have discussed with you. This is your health, and you should be aware of every option available to you so that you can make the best possible decision.
