Benefits of a Second Opinion
You should not feel intimidated to request a second opinion from your current physician. In fact, most physicians encourage their patients to explore options when faced with a major health issue. Our Medical College of Wisconsin physicians have built outstanding relationships with area physicians and will work with you and your physician in providing a customized care plan.
We believe that patients with heart and vascular diseases need to explore all alternatives to choose what is best for them. A second opinion, whether from our team or others, allows you the peace of mind to make the right decision.
Participation in Clinical Trials May be an Option
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin are part of an academic medical center with access to the latest treatments and technology. Our physicians are involved in teaching the next generation of physicians.
Our physicians are also involved in ongoing research. In fact, our Heart and Vascular Center is one of the top research centers in the country, receiving more National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant funding than almost any academic medical center nationwide.
Our physicians might suggest that you become involved in one of our on-going clinical trials as a treatment for your heart disease. Read more about clinical trial participation.
