Adhesive Arachnoiditis. I need a Radiologist or NeuroRadiologist. ?
Neurologist or N.Rad: Either a Neuroradiologist or a well-trained Neurologist would be the ones you should seek out for answers. If you have questions regarding CLINICAL SYMPTOMS, then a Neurologist would probably serve you better; bring a copy of the MRI report & pictures with you to the encounter. IF you can get a hold of a Neuroradiologist, s/he could prob explain the findings on the MRI; symptoms is another matter. ...Read more
Can an orthopedic back specialist render a reasonable second opinion on a diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis? For diagnosis from rheumatologist. Thx!
ASK: Ask your consulting doctor (pcp or consultant) if they can recommend someone for second opinion. Do it in a non-threatening way.

Sometimes a 3rd or more opinion is needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

However, there are times when i provide a second opinion which does result in a charge. A second opinion is well worth the cost if there is a discrepancy or complicated medical situation. ...Read more

Rn at assisted living gives applicants tests for dementia. Since misdiagnosis will hurt, should I get second opinion?
No: Regardless of the type of cancer, it is critical that every patient that requires surgery have a crystal-clear understanding of their treatment. As a cancer surgeon, i feel that communication is as important as the operation itself (and usually takes longer). If a patient is not comfortable with what they have heard, a second opinion from an independent doctor of the same specialty can be helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Second opinions: It is never a bad idea to obtain a 2nd opinion regarding medical care. Complex fractures can take much longer than average to heal, especially in the foot and especially if you are still bearing weight on your foot. New x rays could help with an updated diagnosis also. Smoking delays healing also. ...Read more
