Hi everyone.  I posted this on the Crohn's forum as well, but thought some of you might have experience with this.  Has anyone used the e-second opinion option at Cleveland Clinic where you send them your medical records and they review and give you a second opinion without you having to go there?  My rheumy said she would give me a referral there, but I would have the 6 hr drive each way.  The e-second opinion is about $600 and cannot be billed to insurance, but that may not cost much more than having to drive up there, get a hotel, etc.  Please let me know if you have done this and if it was worth the $ (if you got any better ideas for treatment, etc.).  Thanks so much!
