Patients who are seeking a second opinion may wish to explore treatment options or technology that may not be readily available in their immediate area. As a part of Baylor Scott & White Health, through Baylor Scott & White Research Institute, patients may have options available via clinical trials and studies. We regularly care for patients not only from Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, but also from across the US as well as internationally. Our team is accustomed to assisting patients from the time of diagnosis through procedures or surgery and post follow-up care in collaboration with individual physician offices or clinics.
Specifically, the Cardiovascular Second Opinions program assists in the coordination of appointments with specialists on our medical staff and any additional follow-up, including diagnostic testing that may be required. Our team will help facilitate next steps and work with you regarding your current medical records. Before beginning your second opinion request, you may wish to research your insurance coverage, or we can provide assistance depending on your specific need.
