Dr. Mark Korson of Tufts Medical Center was one of Justina's prior physicians. In an email, he said, "I am dismayed. … It feels like Justina's treatment team is out to prove the diagnosis at all costs. … The (Boston Children's Hospital) team has demanded that Justina be removed from the home. … This represents the most severe and intrusive intervention a patient can undergo … for a clinical hunch."
They received a diagnosis of mitochondrial disease from Dr. Mark Korson of Tufts medical center (valid diagnosis, one would think).

It's not a second opinion when Korson himself was already the 20th+ opinion.
