Get a second opinion on your child's rheumatic disorder
Choosing the right doctor and treatment plan for your child is important. Getting a second opinion from a pediatric rheumatologist provides you with more information and may increase your confidence in your child’s diagnosis and care plan. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your child’s second opinion appointment.
If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.
