View Dr. Rosenkranz's full list of publications from PubMed.
Margalit Rosenkranz, MD, joined the Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in 2004. She brings a strong background in research focused on developing a deeper understanding of the immunogenetics of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and other rheumatic diseases.
Dr. Rosenkranz earned a bachelor's degree in biology at the University of Pittsburgh in 1994 and her medical degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 1998. She completed her pediatric residency at New York University Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital in 2001 and completed a pediatric rheumatology fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery and Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York in 2004.
At Children's Hospital, Dr. Rosenkranz's research has focused on proteomics in JRA to identify specific protein profiles of a patient. By identifying the proteomic "fingerprint" of a patient and differentially expressed proteins in the various subtypes of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, she is seeking to determine whether the serum proteome signatures vary among the different forms of JRA. Proteomic signatures also may be useful in identifying patients who are more or less likely to respond to specific treatments. She received an advanced fellowship training program award from Children's Hospital to help support her research activities.

excellent listener provided clear and easy to understand explanations
Even though we still do not have a specific diagnosis for my son's pain, Dr. Rosenkrantz was very helpful in explaining what the cause may be. She also showed a lot of concern with assisting us in getting the answers we need. She was very accommodating with my request for two different doctor's excuses that my son needed for activities at school. I was impressed that she prepared and printed them herself.
This was a GREAT experience - we really like the Doctor and each of the staff members went above and beyond for a smooth visit.
I love Dr. Rosenkranz and have been seeing her for the past 10 years. She caught my arthritis after many misdiagnoses and I am thankful till this day for her. She is incredibly sweet, approachable, and always addresses my concerns! I would definitely recommend her to friends/family.
wonderful office and staff. Dr. Rozenkranz was very through and informative
the provider didn't take any time to look at my child's records or consult with the referring dept ahead of time and made us feel like she didn't know why we were there and we shouldn't be there. when I was trying to explain the blood test that the allergist had taken she seemed irritated. When I mentioned a fear of an auto immune disorder due to a sibling with crohns she began to explain in a condescending manner. iI would not see this provider if we were referred back to this department.
we refer anyone that has the same or similar condition that my daughter has to Doctor Rosenkrants. I have never met any doctor that takes as much time and care with her patients, showing genuine interest and sensitivity to my daughters needs
Dr. Rosenkrantz is wonderful - she always takes time to talk and listen to my daughter. We never feel rushed.
Our experiences with Childrens and their staff are ALWAYS on time and pleasure able. The staff is very knowledgeable
We love Dr. Rosenkrantz and her treatment of my daughters condition has helped her stay in remission thus far.
Dr. Rosenkranz is always very helpful and caring.
Children's Hospital is always kind and very quick to get you in and out of appointments. Excellent facility and geat staff!
Dr. Rosenkranz is always willing to answer my questions no matter what time it is. We live two hours away and I use the Cerner health messaging feature very often to contact her with updates. She calls or responds via the health portal all the time. We love the care she provides!
Great staff and tremendous Doctor. My daughter feels safe and comforted by the way she is treated at Children's.
When we went into see the doctor we walked out with so many answers it was great! She asked that we start taking an OTC medicine and when we got home we realized that they didn't make a dye free form (my daughter is highly allergic to dyes) and when I called the nurse at the clinic I had a call back within a few hours to let me know they called in a dye free prescription to a local pharmacy. Not only did they make sure the pharmacy delivered but talked to several different people to make sure everything would be dye free. No pharmacy has ever gone up and beyond like that to make sure my child had a medicine she could take. I feel so comfortable taking her to this doctor for future care.
We do not feel that this provider was interested in helping our son with his problem. She didn't seem to be putting forth an effort during her evaluation of our son.
took a while almost an hour after our appointment to see anyone but when we did see someone it became apparent why. they spend so much time with each patient caring for them and listening to each little detail the parent has to say. most people would get upset at the wait well I am not most people I have an extremely medically fragile son and for doctors like these I will wait!! bravo I say bravo what a team you have here even the front desk reception ladies who helped me solve a problem with another appointment that had nothing to do with them but they took their time to do with such a pleasant attitude what beautiful people with beautiful spirits and hearts and we feel so blessed to be treated by you!!!
Rude uncaring doctor. She dx my son with something he did not even complain about. I said I Want a second opinion and she was very cocky and states "well they will tell you the same thing I did". Uncalled for rudeness and resulted in me walking out with my son!!
dr rosenkrntz takes time with our daughter and gives great care
would highly recommend! excellent Doctor!
excellent doctor. i would recommend her to anyone who needed a pediatric rheumatologist !!
Completely blown away. After waiting 2 hours to see this provider...it was worth the wait. We spent our most time with the fellow (I think she was called that). She was great!!! Very down to earth. Spoke directly to my son but then asked me when needed. Perfect.
