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.

Dr. Rosenkrantz is an amazing Dr. she is extremely thorough, always takes the time to go over everything, and allows time for our questions.
Received great, thorough care at this appointment. Had no wait time to see the doctor after initial check in at waiting room.
Great doctor that always takes as much time as we need and goes above and beyond what is required to make sure our medical needs are met.
We love Dr. Rosenkranz! She's so kind and approachable. I feel very confident that my daughter is receiving the best possible medical care.
Dr Rosenkrantz is hands down the best provider we see. I highly recommend her and Childrens Hospital.
My only complaint was that I had to wait a long time to see the provider. When we did see her, she was appologetic about the wait and concerned for tending to my daughter's needs.
We know that the department is a small unit of providers and that they get very busy due to that fact. We have been fortunate to have the same "team" helping us for quite a few years now. we appreciate the promptness on responses and the extra mile that Dr. Rosenkrantz and her team go for us, especially when they're more "favors" than necessity- (when we forget to grab a medication or need an additional medication when on a trip out of the Pittsburgh area).they're great people who truly seem to care! thank you all for making our daughters, as well as our, much easier!
We so appreciate the time and care Dr. Rosencrantz took with us. She listened to everything we had to say, answered our questions thoroughly, and even printed out extensive information about the diagnosis, for us to take home.
Dr. Rozenkratz was great!
we are moving out of state but will be traveling back to see Dr Rosenkratz because of her care and knowledge
Dr. Rosenkranz takes her time at explaining the medical issue with us and our options, providing all side effects to medication. She makes sure that my daughter also understands everything and allows her to express any of her concerns as well.
Dr. Rosenkranz is an amazing provider. she is thorough and always takes her time with us, while still be prompt. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr Rosenkranz is by far the best provider we have gone to. I can't praise her enough, from her bedside manner and genuine care, to her knowledge and willingness to discuss concerns no matter how trivial.
The whole family really liked her.
She always takes time to ask about my life outside of my health problems. She cares about more than just checking up on my health.
we love dr rosenkrantz
Everyone was very friendly and courteous. They listened to Grant's comments and concerns, as well as my concerns. We were very pleased with our experience and the healthcare providers in this department.
I have received excellent care and communication with Dr Rosenkrantz and her staff. We have been coming here for treatment for 15 years and could not be more pleased with the care we have recived
The providers on my daughter's team are amazing, they spend time with her and know her even though we have only seen them since August, finding this team is well worth the 3 hour drive to get to the provider
we have seen multiple doctors for various reasons with my daughters health, and Dr Rosenkranz is a stand out. She consistently provides excellent care and compassion, and has helped my daughters health and symptoms improve. We happily drive nearly 4 hours one way to continue seeing Dr. Rosenkranz.
Amazing doctor and very through, took a long time examining my child, she was in no rush as most providers usually are. So glad she was reccomended to us!
pretty much always have had positive experiences with Dr. R. she has been with us for a long time. so she knows our concerns and is generally very flexible with our schedule.
it was good
Wait time in exam room was greater than 30 minutes
Dr.Rosenkranz is thorough and always kind. She is an A+++ Doctor.
