Normally, I don't give much credence to Yahoo articles. But I do like this one about getting a second opinion.

http://news.yahoo.com/rita-wilsons-cancer-diagnosis-second-opinion-230833266.html

Two things that caught my attention:

People should not worry about upsetting their doctors by getting a second opinion. It happens so frequently that doctors are used to it, Mishori said. "If the doctor's offended, you probably don't want to go to that doctor," Mishori said. "This is about you," she said.

And...

Patients who seek a second opinion should let their first doctors know, Mishori said, and patients will usually need the initial medical tests for the second opinion. In some cases, the two doctors will talk to each other about the case. "It's a learning opportunity for everybody," Mishori said. "It shouldn't be an adversarial process."
