CoffeeOur scleroderma hotline is toll-free in the United States and Canada. It is 1-800-564-7099. Our hotline specialists are not medical professionals, so we cannot provide specific medical advice, but we can often steer you in the right direction. For specific health concerns, you will probably want to consult a listed scleroderma expert.

Our direct number (at your expense) for people outside the U.S. is 952-831-3091. Call today and ask for our free Welcoming Email!
