Anxiety for a Second opinion
Many patients also worry about getting a second opinion on their own accord. For one, they are apprehensive that if their first doctor were to find out that they have gone in for a second opinion, he may be offended. Another source of anxiety is the confusion that would result if they get differing opinions; they are worried they would not know what to do when confronted with such a situation. Most patients are quite passive and they tacitly feel that it much easier to trust their doctor and do whatever he suggests, rather than go through the trouble of getting a second opinion.
