Skin care treatment is a highly complex, highly personal experience and requires complete comfort in and understanding of processes and procedures. Whether undergoing a life-saving skin cancer procedure or simple acne treatment, it is essential to have a strong doctor/patient partnership. Second opinions can help patients gain a deeper understanding of their conditions and their options, and is a common request, which your doctor can help facilitate. When garnering a second opinion it is essential to bring your medical records, scans/X-rays and all test results. This will expedite the second opinion process and ensure a more thoughtful, complete review and diagnosis.
