When faced with complex medical questions or concerns, decisions regarding a new diagnosis or treatment plan for your child, having an expert opinion from the world’s leading pediatric specialists at Boston Children’s Hospital can provide peace of mind that your child is getting the best care.

We have partnered with Grand Rounds to deliver our world-renowned pediatric expertise to you no matter where you are. This new easy to use service is convenient and completely confidential. Everything is done remotely using your current medical records, so you save the disruption of taking time off work, taking your child out of school, as well as the expense of traveling to Boston.

Use our online second opinion tool when your child…

  • has received a new diagnosis
  • has experienced a change in her condition
  • has been recommended for surgery or a treatment plan

Note: The turnaround time for this service is 7-10 business days. This program IS NOT designed to handle medical emergencies, or provide immediate treatment guidance. If this is a medical emergency, please immediately call your local emergency service number (911 in the United States) to get prompt medical attention, or go to your nearest hospital, emergency room, or urgent care center. Do not rely on electronic communications for assistance with immediate, urgent medical issues.
