    Can you get a second opinion with a doctor at Sarah Cannon, TN or do they just do research? Thank you.

    I would say absolutely. Several months ago I reached out to schedule an appointment with Dr. Infante for a 2nd opinion/consult and was able to get an appointment within a couple weeks. Due to other conflicting appointments I had to cancel the appointment but the process was fairly easy and the staff was very helpful. Everything I have heard about Dr. Infante as a researcher, physician, and person has been extremely positive. If you are looking for a 2nd opinion I think you would do really well with Dr. Infante. If you need help with phone numbers let me know.

    Dr. Infante, and his team are excellent and compassionate. I think they provide a great independent assessment to patients, whether it is for a trial they have or not. The contact I have for new patients is Jan Hronek <jhronek@tnonc.com>. You will need to have your records shipped there in advance. Let us know how things work out.

    Cheris,

    I’m not at home now so I don’t have all my contacts with me but the one contact I have saved in my phone is Heather Spivey at 615-320-5090. Hope that helps.
