Most physicians welcome second opinions, and in most cases, a second look by experts will confirm your initial diagnosis and your doctor’s plan. At Roswell Park, most patients who need a second opinion are seen within a week. To arrange for a second opinion, call 1-800-ROSWELL (1-800-767-9355) or fill out the online Become a Patient Form.
Even if you come to Roswell Park only for a second opinion, you are under no obligation to receive care or treatment here.
You are welcome to call (1-877-ASK-RPCI /1-877-275-7724) or email us with any questions you may have about cancer in general, the tests and treatments you are receiving, or the services provided by Roswell Park.
