Stanford Medicine Online Second Opinion Program

Receive online second opinions with Stanford physicians

Second opinions are a critical component to making informed decisions about you or your child’s care. That’s why we’ve partnered with Stanford Medicine Physicians through Included Health, to provide second opinions easily and securely through an easy to use online platform.

How it works: A Stanford specialist will receive a full set of medical records to review your child's case. You and your local physician will receive an in-depth report back which includes a review of the current treatment plans and suggestions for more appropriate treatment options, if applicable.
