The CAPPSKIDS.ORG Second Opinion/Consult Portal is available to both parents and physicians.
An expert Second Opinion from a CAPPSKIDS.ORG Directory Specialist may be used for the following:
- Confirmation of a new diagnosis
- Evaluate current recommended treatment plan
- Review non-surgical treatment plan
Please remember that a second opinion based only on images and medical records is necessarily limited to what is contained in those files. It cannot replace an in-person medical evaluation from a qualified physician.
***Please note that if you reside in a state that is different than the state where you are requesting a consult, the report must be sent to your primary care provider. If you reside in the same state, the report will be sent directly to you.
Note: This program is NOT designed to handle medical emergencies. If this is a medical emergency, please immediately call your local emergency service number (911 in the United States) to get prompt medical attention, or go to your nearest hospital, emergency room, or urgent care center.
