Not only does Hart to Heart Cancer Consultants not frown upon seeking a second opinion, we highly recommend it.
Nobody is ever prepared to face a diagnosis of cancer. No matter how strong and well-informed you are, when you are suddenly diagnosed with cancer, you are faced with the challenge of making life-saving decisions in a very short period of time.
Does the following scenario sound familiar? Your primary care doctor referred you to an oncologist. At consultation time, no matter how hard the oncologist tried, you were bombarded by medical jargon unfamiliar to your vocabulary and endless amounts of information. You became overwhelmed. To educate yourself, you sought information on the internet, but were not equipped for discerning the reliable information versus the much more prominent misinformation.
More often than not, there is more than one option to choose from. Gone are the days of your doctor telling you what you need to do. You have options and the final decision is yours to make. A second opinion can provide new information to redirect you on a path towards a new and better option or describe the same information in an easier to understand way, reaffirming a life changing decision you have already made.
At Hart to Heart Cancer Consultants, we avoid medical jargon and simplify the difficult medical concepts related to your treatment options. This allows you to have a much better understanding of your condition and your options. You will leave a Hart to Heart consultation with a sense of relief knowing that your decision is a well-informed one. We will not rush you through the conversation. Instead, we will take our time to make sure all of your questions have been answered before you leave. We provide you with a tape recording of the entire session so you and your family can listen to the consultation as many times as you wish. We do this because we realize you can only pick up a small percentage of the information given to you at the time of consultation.
Hart to Heart Cancer Consultants does not have any financial interest in the type of treatment you choose and that ensures that our recommendation is unbiased and genuine. We thrive on earning your trust and will not compromise that by offering you a treatment that is good for us and not you! We provide support along with our opinions and recommendations through reliable resources and scientific data. We want to empower you with the knowledge you cannot obtain on your own.
