Second opinions from Sanford Cancer Center

At Sanford Cancer Center in Sioux Falls, we understand being diagnosed with cancer can be frightening. It may be hard to make decisions about treatment options, and specifically decide what the best option is for you.

Through our multidisciplinary approach our medical teams work collaboratively and are connected by one of the most advanced electronic medical record systems in the nation. This includes My Chart at Sanford, an online system that allows you to send message to your doctor or review your test and lab results at your convenience.

Patients should know that it is common for patients to go to another doctor or cancer clinic to have their diagnosis and treatment recommendations reviewed. In fact, some insurance companies require one before you start treatment. Everyone certainly has the right to a second opinion and caregivers should respect your choice to get one. Hundreds who opted to pursue a second opinion have traveled to our Sanford Cancer Center in Sioux Falls to meet with our team of cancer specialists.

Sanford Cancer Center makes it easy to request a second opinion after you’ve been diagnosed with any type of cancer. In many cases, it will take just one visit. To request an appointment, call (605) 328-8000.
