The Importance of Getting a Second Opinion

In our 100+ years of experience treating life-threatening illnesses, we’ve discovered that with almost any illness, there are options. Options like different methods of diagnosis or alternative treatments that might be available for the same diagnosis. Being newly diagnosed is a critical stage in any disease. Make sure you gather all the professional advice available.
