The second opinion of the doctor is confidence in the correct diagnosis
In modern medicine, a new service is gaining more and more popularity - "Second opinion of a doctor" . Why is the second opinion so attractive and why is it considered that the expert opinion of another doctor is a completely new approach in the field of treatment and diagnosis?
What is the essence of the "second opinion"?
Despite the obvious progress in the field of medicine and science, the doctor cannot always make the correct diagnosis. Sometimes an imperfect technique is to blame for this, sometimes a doctor does not have the proper experience and qualifications. In any case, the patient suffers who wants to be sure of his diagnosis. Indeed, without a correct and unambiguous diagnosis, an effective treatment cannot be prescribed.
How to understand the diagnosis? How to resolve your doubts? How to make sure that the doctor is qualified enough and believe that the treatment that the patient is receiving is effective and optimal?
If the patient doubts the correctness of the diagnosis, if other doctors , advising this patient, question the diagnosis, if the patient's condition, despite the treatment, does not improve, then it is important to get qualified help from another specialist of a different level of training and from another medical institution. This practice has long been widespread in many countries of the world and is called the "Second opinion of the doctor."
