Your health deserves a second opinion: be confident in your cancer treatment
If you’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you’re likely feeling overwhelmed and unsure about which treatment option is best for you. It can be a complicated decision with so many options available to you, each with its own risks and considerations.
Second opinions are highly encouraged throughout the medical field – especially for cancer. In fact, most diagnosing physicians should, and do, recommend a second opinion to confirm treatment options. We’re making it as easy as possible to get that peace of mind a second opinion provides patients.
At Urology Associates you can submit your information and test results and out team will review those records and send you an email or schedule a phone call to let you know if you would benefit from exploring alternative treatment options. Our physicians review each request and this service is complimentary and you do not have to leave the comfort of your home to get another doctor’s opinion.
If you decide that you would like to meet with the doctor to further discuss your options, we will set you up with a formal appointment to discuss your complete medical history and review all alternative treatment options that may be recommended.
In order to complete your second opinion online request, please have the following information on hand. Otherwise, fill out as much information as possible and we will contact you for further details.
