Rheumatology Program Your Visit

At the Rheumatology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, we try to make your appointment as convenient and comfortable as possible.

Planning ahead and being prepared helps make your child’s appointment easier and decreases your wait. A good way to do this is by filling out paperwork beforehand and bringing it and your insurance information with you to your appointment. If a doctor outside of Boston Children’s is referring you, it's also helpful to bring a letter of what the doctor’s concerns are.

A typical consultation visit to the Rheumatology Program will take about one to two hours for new patients and 30 to 60 minutes for returning patients. 

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
