Pediatric Cardiology Patient Resources

The Pediatric and Fetal Cardiology Division takes care of kids and adults with congenital heart disease. The doctors evaluate infants and children up to the age of 18 for cardiac disease. Patients are also evaluated for rhythm problems, chest pain, syncope, elevated BP, cardiac issues related to childhood obesity and hyperlipidemia. We also provide evaluations for expectant mothers whose fetus may have a heart problem.
