Where should you start?

If you choose to go for a second opinion, it's a good rule to ask someone with at least the same level of skill and knowledge of your health condition as your current health care provider. Consider contacting a specialist. Your current healthcare provider may be able to suggest someone.
Even better, ask someone at an institution specializing in your condition, like a cancer treatment center or a heart surgery center. These centers will have the latest in healing technology, and a team of experts may be readily available to review your case.

What should you tell your healthcare provider?

Most healthcare providers will acknowledge their patients' right to a second opinion, so you just need to be honest and straightforward. Be sure to ask for your medical records so you can share them with the second healthcare provider. By law, your healthcare provider must give these records to you.
