Online Second Opinion

Second opinion programs are 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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
