I would like an opinion of what should be mentioned in a consultation.
Recently, I was diagnoses with a very serious condition for which there is little medical treatment.
I have decided to obtain a second opinion regarding the diagnosis. In addition, I have decided to explore alternative therapies.
I have an out patient appointment shortly with the original consultant. I am wondering if I should mention that I am obtaining a second opinion, and my desire to seek alternative therapies; or should these factors not be mentioned?
