Esophageal cancer is a serious diagnosis. In order to make sure they are getting the best treatment for their diagnoses, many patients seek a second opinion. Getting a second opinion does not always (or even usually) mean that the patient doesn’t trust his or her his regular medical provider. In the case of serious diagnoses like esophageal cancer, getting a second opinion is often a good idea so that patients can hear from doctors who specialize in the treatment of esophageal cancer.
As a leading treatment center for esophageal cancer, Johns Hopkins sees between 50 and 100 newly diagnosed patients a year, providing a depth of experience that assures our patients that they will receive the best possible treatment plan for their diagnosis.
Same-day consultations with esophageal experts
The Johns Hopkins Esophageal Cancer Program offers quick, thorough second opinions through our multi-disciplinary clinic for esophageal cancer patients. Patients can call in and talk to an esophageal cancer care coordinator who can provide them with more information about the second opinion program and the multi-disciplinary clinic. Patients can also find out about available clinical trials during that call.
To make an appointment or if you have questions, call 410-933-5420.
