Not at all. : I actually encourage patients to get a second opinion if the have any doubts or questions about my methodology or treatment plan. There are many different "ways to skin a cat," and I never take it personally. However I usually find that those who go and get a second opinion usually come back and are much more eager and comfortable with moving forward with treatment. Just my two cents though.
