Review for thesecondopinion, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having been in medical oncology practice for over 30 years I learned how important it is for patients to both understand their disease and have clarity with respect to choices of treatment. Thesecondopinion provides free second opinions to cancer patients in the State of California by utilizing over 60 volunteer cancer specialists who review the chart, imaging and pathology and meet as a multidisciplinary panel in person with the patient and their family in an informal setting. I have been privileged to be medical director of thesecondopinion for the past 3 years and have seen first hand the impact the organization has in helping people make peace with their disease.

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

Expand the number of patients that can be served which is limited by the number of volunteer physicians, geography and finances
