Get a second opinion
If your child is at a different hospital or being seen by a different provider, get a second opinion from Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. We may be able to offer a different perspective and give more information. We offer a team approach with experts from many specialties. Our patients benefit from our experts' wide range of experiences with both common and rare neonatal diagnosis and care.
Second opinions help parents confirm that recommended treatment is right for their child. They also can surface other options to explore – even if treatment is already underway.
We accept patient self-referrals as well as those from medical care providers – no matter where the mother delivers.
Call us at (414) 266-8508 to learn more.
Still have questions about getting a second opinion?
Why should I get a second opinion?
A second opinion can make sure the treatment plan is appropriate and that you aren't missing other options. The more information you have, the better the choices you will make to help your child. Even if treatment has already started, a second opinion can help guide your child’s care.
Is a second opinion covered by insurance?
Most insurance plans cover second opinions, but it's always a good idea to check your coverage to be sure. If you need help with that, just call us at (414) 266-8508.
