Our Pediatric Cardiology team provides the highest level of care to babies, children, and young adults. Your child will be cared for by one of the largest, most experienced and specialized cardiology teams in the region.
If your child’s pediatrician or family doctor suspects a heart condition, patients can typically be seen in our Consultation Clinic within 1 to 2 days.
The Pediatric Heart Institute’s Cardiology Clinics have received the highest patient satisfaction ratings possible, based on the quality of care provided, timely service, and friendly staff. Families leave with their questions answered and an understanding of their child’s condition and plan.
A typical visit begins with checking the patient's vital signs while you have the opportunity to share your child’s concerns and medical history. Your doctor will perform a thorough exam that may include an electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, or chest X-ray. We review many of these test results with you before the end of your visit.
