If you have been diagnosed with a heart condition, it is essential to get a second opinion to ensure all possibilities for treatment are considered. A second opinion can ease your mind, possibly prevent an unnecessary procedure and provide you with an alternative option to consider. The following are all legitimate reasons to seek a second opinion:

  • I’ve had heart surgery but have new symptoms I’m worried about
  • I’m not sure if my medication regimen is the best for me
  • I don’t think I’m being taken seriously with my symptoms
  • I want the latest advancements in surgical and medical treatment
