The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at Hospital for Special Surgery is affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine, and provides complex and comprehensive diagnostic services for children with rheumatic diseases and related conditions.
Our expertise includes: 
   - juvenile rheumatoid arthritis 
   - lupus 
   - pediatric scleroderma 
   - vasculitis of childhood 
   - Lyme disease 
   - Raynaud's phenomenon 
   - Other pediatric rheumatology conditions 
Virtually every medicine that is used by the adult rheumatologist - in the appropriate child, with very careful monitoring - is now used by our experienced pediatric rheumatologists with excellent outcomes. With new biologic therapies, many of them tested at Hospital for Special Surgery, along with physical therapy, the disease can be controlled and children can regain normal function.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Harold Martinez

"We just had our first appointment at HHS with Dr.Ambler and Dr.Onel. Our 6 year old has suspected HIDS (rare type of periodic fever syndrome.) I reached out Dr.Onel while searching for a second opinion and she was absolutely amazing at accommodating us. Both her and Dr.Ambler made us feel heard and took the time to really talk to us answer all our questions and make us feel reassured that we will figure out what was going on with our daughter and the safest and most effective way of treatment. They helped us with the 504 for her school right away, and took our input very seriously. Most importantly they made my daughter feel safe and comfortable which is very hard for her when going to these appointments. They go above and beyond their duty! We left the office confident and with hope for the first time it a very long time!! I would highly recommend!!!"

"Doctor Onel cared for daughter when she worked here in Chicago and when she decided to love on it was such a tough blow to our family. Dr. Onel was amazing with our daughter, caring, patience, well informed and really just a hands on doctor. She wasn't like most doctors, you can tell she was passionate about her work. Dr. Onel would wear this necklace that my daughte loved to play with and everyone single time she had an appointment Dr. Onel, would explain why she wears it, never getting annoyed with my daughter. Dr. Onel is the absolute BEST."

"Dr. Taber is wonderful - probably the best doctor we have ever seen. She is extremely knowledgeable and spoke to my child in a manner that was easy to understand. She followed up on everything and was truly caring. I highly recommend her."
