Second Opinions

When you're fighting a disease like cancer, you want the most targeted treatment options available, delivered by a team of experts. A second opinion helps you feel confident that you are getting the right cancer care. You may discover additional treatment options for your type and stage of cancer, or confirm a current treatment approach. Some advanced treatment options can result in a speedier recovery, with fewer side effects and a better diagnosis.

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event. You may be experiencing many different emotions right now, including feeling overwhelmed with all of the decisions you need to make. We're here to help you through the process.

Exploring a second opinion can help you make a more informed decision about your cancer treatment. It can also introduce you to advanced treatment options. At Lafayette Cancer Care, we evaluate your type and stage of cancer and provide assistance with family support during treatment.

Honesty is an important part of the doctor/patient relationship, so it is best to keep both doctors aware of your decisions. You will need to retrieve medical records from your original appointment, and this can be a time to inform your physician that you are exploring other treatment options.
