What is a second opinion?

A second opinion is when you seek out the advice of another medical professional after receiving a diagnosis or treatment plan from your current doctor. Your diagnosis and treatment plan will be reviewed by an expert Cleveland Clinic physician, so you can be more informed and confident before making important decisions about your health. 

When would I need a second opinion?

Consider a second opinion when you’re diagnosed with a serious condition, told you need to have a surgery or procedure, or confused about or struggling with a medical challenge. 

Do I need to travel to Cleveland Clinic for my second opinion?

No travel is required. The expert Cleveland Clinic physician will review your condition and provide a second opinion online. The entire process is completed from the comfort of your home.
