Second Opinion

Would you like a second opinion about your cancer or blood disorder diagnosis?

Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers’ (NGOC) cancer team provides second opinion consultations as a way to reassure you are getting the best treatment plan and advance care available.

An advantage for choosing NGOC is its commitment to advanced cancer treatment and clinical trials and a team of expert oncologists FIGHTING FOR YOU.   We want to eliminate the “what ifs” and provide our patients with peace of mind and confidence in their cancer care.

To schedule a second opinion consultation with a NGOC oncologist, call 678.331.3277.

Please bring the following medical information to your second opinion consultation:

  • Pathology reports and pathology slides for review
  • Operative report of any recent major surgery
  • X-ray films or copies of x-ray reports, CT scans, MRI scans, or nuclear medicine scans
  • Summary or treatment flow sheets of any previous treatments
  • New patient forms

If you decide to transfer your care to NGOC, we’ll assist you and your family in the transition and ensure continuity of care.

Current NGOC patients also are encouraged to get a second opinion if they need reassurance.  We’ll help guide you to a treatment center or physician specializing in the treatment of your condition. If you wish to have a second opinion, please discuss this with your physician.  We’ll provide the names of experts available and facilitate making the appointment and  transferring appropriate records.
