How many breast surgeons and plastic surgeons can I see under Medicare?
Started Medicare in August and diagnosed this January. I would like to meet with several breast surgeons and plastic surgeons before making a decision on my team. From what I read, Medicare allows you to get a second opinion and if the second and first opinion don't match you can seek a third consult. I am scared to make appointments because I need to be confident I will like one of the two doctors I meet. It's not really an issue of what they are proposing treatment wise, but what my feelings are about the doctors - do they answer my questions, do I feel rushed, are they abrupt, am I impressed with the pictures they are showing me (for PS), when can they fit me in their schedule. For those on Medicare, were you. limited to two consults or am I misunderstanding the rules? Thank you.
