Second opinion

To request a second opinion from our team, please call 617-355-5837. If you are unable to come for an in-person second opinion in Boston, we offer an Online Second Opinion Program

Our dedicated care coordinator will help you:

  • understand and coordinate all the required insurance information for your visit
  • collect all of your child's medical records and needed information from your pediatrician or other doctors
  • customize your appointment scheduling if you need to see multiple doctors

Our doctors, nurses and clinical staff carefully review information we get from you and your doctors, including the medical record history, notes and any test results related to the cause of your visit. This allows us to focus our time on your child and better coordinate your appointments with other specialists, if needed.
