What to tell and what not to tell your second doctor?
A crucial question is: Should you let the expert know your first doctor's opinion?

However, most doctors do not appreciate patients who play games with them. It's far better to be forthright and explain to the expert that you are looking for a second opinion, so that he can explain the pros and cons of all the available options.
