In brief: Go ahead

No professional physician will mind at all if you switch physicians.
It is always safe to say you'd like to get a second opinion from another physician. No physician should ever be intimidated by their patient seeking a second opinion from another doctor.

Some might, but perhaps you are better off with someone more secure in their abilities.

If your doctor "minds" then you should get a new doctor anyway. Trust me, most of us don't mind at all.

In brief: Answer

Tell your doctor you would appreciate a 2nd opinion from another specialist of the same field.
Your 1st specialist shouldn't feel offended by this.
