Consultations – Second Opinions
Getting a second opinion about a cancer diagnosis or treatment options can provide you with more information to make decisions or feel more confident about your choices.
Physicians support their patients seeking further evaluation of a cancer diagnosis, as do most health insurance companies. The experts at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Abington – Jefferson Health provide consultations and evaluations of a diagnosis, treatment plan or other cancer concern.
