Podcast: The art of the second opinion
Attorney Jim Boston of Boston & Hughes PC sits down with TMLT’s Anthony Passalacqua to discuss the complexities faced by physicians when providing a second opinion. His anecdotes and experiences in previous trials help listeners understand that providing a second opinion is truly an art! Before providing a second opinion, it is important for the provider to fully understand the patient’s medical status; carefully consider the professional opinion of the patient’s primary physician; and remain as professional and ethical as possible when communicating a differing opinion to the patient. As a result, the patient is equipped with the information needed to make important decisions.
