Every effort is made to treat children in the outpatient environment to reduce patient families' stress and discomfort
We perform more than 10,000 annual echocardiographic studies, including transthoracic, transesophageal, fetal and intracardiac echocardiograms. We work in tandem with maternal fetal medicine specialists and neonatologists to assist in managing prenatally diagnosed cardiac conditions. Our electrophysiology clinic provides assessment and follow-up care for outpatients with known or suspected cardiac conduction abnormalities.
