We care for our patients.

Moms and dads bring their child in for a variety of reasons. The pediatrician hears a new heart murmur in an otherwise healthy infant. An active teenager has new onset dizziness for no apparent reason. An obstetrician notes a slow heart rate in a fetus who is near term and sends the mother in for a fetal echocardiogram and consult. No matter the reason – patients are our first priority and a comprehensive approach to evaluating their heart health and getting to the root cause of their issue is at the heart of all we do.

In pediatric patients, we perform this test on a treadmill.  We obtain a baseline EKG and blood pressure, and the patient then exercises on the treadmill for 10 to 15 minutes.

Pediatric patients, just like adults, can have difficulty with high cholesterol or triglyceride levels.

Sometimes a child’s cholesterol is high because of genetics.  Some individuals are born with improperly functioning enzymes and are not able to break down fats in the diet.
