For many who have already been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension, getting to that diagnosis may not have been easy. It is common to experience misdiagnosis prior to PH and during that frustrating process, 2nd opinions may have been necessary. The other experience some might have had is once diagnosed with PH it became clear that what you needed next was a PH specialist if your current doctor wasn’t one. Personally I have not heard of anyone being misdiagnosed “with” PH but I have known people uncertain once diagnosed, if they where receiving proper treatment and care. What has your experience been in obtaining a 2nd opinion?
