Get a second opinion
Gastroenterology or hepatology issues in children can be frightening. That’s why you owe it to yourself and to your child to get a second opinion. Confirm the original diagnosis, and get the information you need to find the right care for your child.
Why should I get a second opinion?
The urge to start treatment right away is common. 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 any change in 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) 607-5280 (toll free at (877) 607-5280).
