Second Opinion Centre
Specialising in 16 different areas, Policlínica Glorieta’s Second Opinion Centre is a great way to get another perspective from a second doctor. If you are unsure whether the defined therapy is the right one for you, allow the clinic to give you a valuable second opinion.
First, the staff examines the existing findings that you may have, the recordings of the imaging procedures and the previous therapy recommendation. Professional expertise can only be provided after personal examination and consultation.
If the staff’s findings result in a different second opinion, the staff contacts the doctor you treated in the first place. This serves to prevent a possible professional conflict from burdening you as a patient.
In the end, the choice is completely up to the patient whether or not they wish to follow the advice of the first or second opinion.
