Second Opinion Program
Lung 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 lung cancer, getting a second opinion is often a good idea so that patients can hear from doctors who specialize in treating lung cancer.
As a leading treatment center for lung cancer, Johns Hopkins offers its patients personalized care, specialized treatment, and pioneering therapies to extend life.
Same-day consultations with lung cancer experts
The Johns Hopkins Lung Cancer Program offers quick, thorough second opinions through our multidisciplinary clinic for lung cancer patients. Patients can call in and talk to a lung cancer care coordinator who can provide them with more information about the second opinion program and the multidisciplinary clinic. Patients can also find out about available clinical trials during that call.
To make an appointment or if you have questions, call 410-955-LUNG (5864).
