The seeking and rendering of second opinions are common occurrences in the routine delivery of medical care in the United States. Virtually all subspecialties of medicine offer second opinions to patients seeking them. For patients and the medical community alike, however, the benefit associated with obtaining a second opinion remains unclear.
