English term or phrase:Patients discounted doctors' opinions
Upon receiving the news of being terminally ill, patients immediately responded, "No, not me. It can't be true." Some patients were observed "shopping around" for many doctors, looking for reassuring second opinions. Patients discounted doctors' opinions that confirmed the original diagnosis and emphasized those that were more optimistic.
