Second Opinion process for John Hopkins University

I want to briefly describe the process of getting a second opinion from John Hopkins University.

First, go to this address or google Anatomic Pathology Consultation Services

http://pathology.jhu.edu/department/services/secondopinion.cfm

Second, complete the form, obtain prostate biopsy slides/blocks, and send to the address list on the form.

The consultation price (250 or 350 dollars without insurance) is relatively low. UPS/Fedex overnight air for the lightweight samples wont cost more than 100 dollars.

I think that it is a good idea that the patient contacts JHU after the samples arrived at JHU.

In my case, the results were out shortly after the samples arrived at JHU. They did not notify me the results right away. I called in and talked to Dr. Epstein for a short while about the results and possible treatment plans. You may want to be emotionally prepared because the second opinion may be worse than the original diagnosis. The consultation price covers the short interaction with the doctor who performs the second opinion.

I think that the whole process wont take more than 1 week.

Good luck everyone.
