Statistics show that in 88% of cases, when re-examined by another doctor, the diagnosis is at least refined, and sometimes completely changed. This leads to a change of drug therapy and even dropping the need for surgery that was initially recommended. Diseases usually progress over time. Therefore, on re-examination, the clinical picture is often more complete and the correct diagnosis is easier.
Medicine is a “team sport” – it is played by a team. Therefore, a second opinion from another physician always helps. When the patient is at risk, the prudent treating physician insists on a second opinion himself.
