Online Remote Medical Consultation Program

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia specialists offer in-person second opinions at CHOP to any patient and in select clinical areas offer remote consultations for patient families who reside in certain states throughout the country. The remote consultation program allows our pediatric specialists to review a patient's medical records virtually and provide a consultation report that answers specific questions based on the information provided.
