We know it may not be easy to get expert medical care for your loved one with Down syndrome. If you are not able to come to our Down Syndrome Program at Massachusetts General Hospital in-person, we have two other options for your family.
Down Syndrome Clinic to You (DSC2U)
Very few families who have loved ones with Down syndrome live in an area where they can visit a Down syndrome specialty program like the one at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. We know that most hardworking primary care physicians have only one or two patients with Down syndrome in their practice, so it is both unreasonable and impractical to expect them to stay current on all of the healthcare recommendations for this unique population.
We created Down Syndrome Clinic to You (DSC2U) to bring the best of health and wellness information about Down syndrome to caregivers and primary care physicians around the globe. We believe that location and personal finances should never prevent someone from accessing the best and most timely medical information for a loved one with Down syndrome.

Online Second Opinion
Our hospital collaborates with Grand Rounds, a leading digital health care company, to offer online second opinions from physicians in our MassGeneral Hospital Down Syndrome Program. Receiving a second opinion can reassure you about a challenging diagnosis, or help you plan the most appropriate course of treatment. For more details on how this works, click here.
