We often have to consult with people who are specialists on certain life issues. In fact, once in a while, and on certain matters, depending on the seriousness of the case, we may need to seek second opnions too. How do you see it ? Do you seek second opnion some times ?

Yes, we need to seek second opinion on sensitive and critical issues, to be able to decide what step we will take. Especially in health matter, it is a must that we seek other specialist opinion. Often one doctor opinion is different to the others, and who knows who is the right one? But knowing several opinion of different specialists we will be able to decide further.

There are many things to take into consideration in medical cases, indeed. And, decision should be made only after considering all related factors. Yeah, you have very rightly said. Often the opinion of one doctor can be different from that of another. Thank you for sharing your views.

Consulting with family and friends is a wise thing to do, indeed. The objective is to find the right solution and make the right decision. Conditions and factors will differ from case to case, and views of people who have the knowledge and experience will be very helpful.

That is well said. I certainly understand what you are saying. The objective of seeking second opinion is to be sure that all things to be considered are considered. This is applicable to different cases and situations. Thank you very much.

No I don't. If you are talking about a medical condition, I don't trust doctors so whenever I Have to see them I expect the worst.If you are talking personal, I usually don't ask for advice.

Helo Sarah. The question is relating to different cases and conditions, including medical cases of course. Yes, doctors can have different opinions.

I do seek second opinions most of the time. I would like to know if people would think just the way that I think. And of course, I want to make sure before I take some actions. Asking for second opinion is not bad. You are just trying to minimize any wrong actions that you may have done. On my profession, I always seek for second opinion. I am a nurse and I do not want any life to suffer just because I didn't ask first before I do certain things.

Asking for second opinion would be quite important in your profession. Yes, I can understand that very well. You are certainly making sure that nothing is done without considering all different views frst. That is very much to the benfit of the patients, right ?

for me, second opinions are needed all the time. People has different interpretations of any situation... so we need to ask for other peoples advice... it is even more important in medical practices. some doctors cant diagnose how other doctors do. they see illnessess in differnet views... soem doctors are more knowledgeable because of experience.. theres a lot of things to consider.... and not all of us see it.. were just human happy mylotting!!

yes, I ask second opinion. When we were preparing for our wedding, we asked several caterers and coordinators. Then we have to choose the best laid plan suitable for our wedding. As long as the result will have tremendous effect then I ask for second opinion.

In medical ailments i'll seek a second opinion.Even in matters relating to investment,i seek a second opinion.Its only when the matter is of difficulty and importance that i seek a second opinion.But in simple terms taking second opinion in all matters only creates complication.

Yes, I certainly agree with you. Second opinions, instead of being helpful, do make things complicated, even in medical cases too. One has to make the right decision whether it would be worth getting a second opinion or not. I appreciate your views.
