How to request a second opinion
To request a second opinion, please complete the form below. You will be assigned a KidCierge personal care navigator from Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. They will lead you through collection of your child’s medical records, manage other logistics and answer any questions you may have.
A Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital pediatric specialist will review your child's records, answer your questions and schedule a follow-up telehealth visit. Your pediatric specialist will let you know when it's time to securely upload your child's medical records.
If the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital navigator assigned to your request determines that the case is not appropriate for an evaluation, he/she will work with you on next steps.
