An excellent source for getting an objective second opinion is the medical faculty of public hospitals - government or municipal. This source, unfortunately, has been grossly underused. The staff members here are basically academicians. Since they teach medical students and residents, they are usually well read and well informed. Moreover, since they do not have a financial stake in providing you with advice, their information is likely to be reliable and accurate. Of course, this procedure does involve the bother of waiting for a long time to get to see the doctor, but this wait is often well worth the effort!
