Biospy second Opinion

My biopsy slides were read by Diamon Systems out of OK, where a team of pathologists meet to review all cancer diagnoses. Is anyone familiar with Diamon Systems? Should I get a second opinion from Hopkins?

I remember reading in the book "The Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers", it is adviseable to get at least 3 different labs to review biopsy slides. I'm sure a second opinion from a well known lab would be a good idea.
