60% follow recommendations from the second opinion

A recent study Dr. Singh co-authored looked at data from Best Doctors Inc., an independent service that offers second opinions online to companies and insurance carriers that offer them as a benefit. The researchers reviewed 6,791 second opinions; there were changes in diagnosis 14.8% of the time and changes in treatment 37.4% of the time. About 60% of the patients ended up following the recommendations from the second opinion, according to the study, published in April in the American Journal of Medicine.
