Having doubts about a diagnosis? Wondering why that medication isn't working? Get a second opinion. Even if the second opinion is similar to what the first doctor told you, it will put your mind to rest.

Take action: First check if your medical aid will cover the second consultation. Consider a second opinion when: the first diagnosis isn’t clear; you have a rare or serious condition; your current treatment isn’t working; your doctors suggest a procedure that is risky, expensive or experimental.
