Review for thesecondopinion, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After a recent diagnosis of breast cancer a friend mentioned her excellent experience using "the second opinion" to discuss her own cancer diagnosis. I met with my panel who had carefully reviewed all of my medical records. The panel listened very carefully to my concerns and helped me come up with a treatment plan that was specific to my situation and my family history. I was then able to approach my own doctors with the plan that was readily accepted. I was thankful to have a place to run by options and check out the advice given to me by my own medical team. In addition to the excellent knowledge, I found the panelists very warm and humane. I would recommend this service (and have) to others.

Review for thesecondopinion, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thesecondopinion provides a vital service unavailable even at the most prestigious of facilities FOR FREE to California residents. A group of reputable up-to-date physicians who specialize in cancer volunteer their time to assist vulnerable patients in the management of their disease.
Our client surveys consistently report how having access to a second opinion has helped them on multiple levels – from truly understanding their diagnosis and ability to plan for their futures, to ways to improve symptom management and connections to additional support services.
This is the only organization of its kind in the United States, surviving solely by word of mouth and volunteerism for more than 40 years!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it as much money possible to expand its reach to help cancer patients in need all over the country, not just California.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?
