With a second opinion comes peace of mind

Having more than one expert opinion can be especially beneficial if:

  • You are uncertain about your diagnosis
  • You have a complex surgical case
  • There are multiple treatment options available
  • Other health problems make treatment riskier
  • You've been told your treatment options are limited
  • You are anxious about choosing the right treatment plan

Getting a second opinion

If your doctor is part of another healthcare organization, you can still select Gundersen as your cancer care provider or for a second opinion. You should check with your insurance plan to see if a second opinion appointment or tests are covered, if Gundersen is an in-network or out-of-network provider, and what, if any, are your out of pocket costs.  We can provide you with an estimate of the cost.

An appointment for a second opinion can usually be arranged in one to three work days. We'll work with you and your primary care provider to get access to your medical records and the results of tests you may have already had.
