Stanford Medicine Online Second Opinion Program

Getting a pediatric second opinion can be a critical component of making an informed decision about your child’s treatment. Stanford Medicine physicians partnered with Grand Rounds to provide a convenient and secure service. Everything is done online and securely, saving you the time and expense of traveling to Palo Alto. A Stanford specialist will receive a full set of medical records and 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.

How do I get started?

  • Create an online account using your email address
  • Have a list of your local doctors available whom Grand Rounds should contact to obtain your medical records or those of the patient, as well as the doctors' contact information
  • Provide information about the patient and yourself, including demographic details and specifics about the medical condition
