Second Opinions

If you are fortunate enough to have more than one option for the treatment of your cancer, making the decision of which treatment to receive can be overwhelming. Each option has its own benefits and disadvantages and it is not always very clear cut what treatment would be better for you. Friends, family members, and other cancer survivors, with their best intention, may suggest one or invite you to receive the same treatment they have received. 

But the optimal treatment is very individualized and depends on a variety of factors including the type of cancer, the stage of the disease, other medical issues, and personal preferences. To make the matter even more complicated, the success rate of some of these modalities are not significantly different making it even harder to choose. 

Dr. Hart strongly believes in second opinions and often invites her own patients to seek a second opinion. The advantage of having a second opinion lies not only on the mere fact that you have another specialist take an independent look at your condition, but also the way it is explained to you may make a huge difference in your understanding of your options. 

Dr. Hart offers second opinions to those who either have difficulty making the right choice or might want to make sure what has been offered to them is the right treatment for them. 

Please contact Dr. Hart for more details.
