Coming soon!

Our upgraded online second opinion program will be available soon – likely in February 2024. Because the service is offered remotely, patients will be able to use it no matter where they live.

In the meantime, to make an in-person appointment for your child as a UCSF patient, please call (877) 822-4453 (877-UC-CHILD) for help with finding a pediatric provider or search our UCSF doctors and UCSF clinics online.

Requests in progress

If you submitted a second opinion request prior to Friday, Dec. 29, 2023, rest assured that your request will be processed.

Second opinions at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals

If your child has a complex medical issue or you're facing a difficult treatment decision about their care, having a second opinion from leading specialists at a world-class academic medical center, such as UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals, can provide valuable guidance and peace of mind.

Note: Do not use this service for medical emergencies or if you need immediate treatment guidance. If this is a medical emergency, please call your local emergency service number (911 in the U.S.) or go to the nearest emergency room.
