Pediatric Cardiology Consultation


The first office visit, or consultation, is usually made upon the recommendation from your child’s doctor. The consultation includes a thorough history and cardiac examination and any tests that the cardiologist feels that are necessary such as an electrocardiogram (EKG), echocardiogram, or 24 hour Holter monitor. Your child’s cardiologist will spend time with you and your child in their office explaining the diagnosis and answering your questions. Sometimes no treatment or follow-up is needed. In other cases, understanding a heart problem in your child is a difficult and trying task. Please be assured that the cardiologist will spend as much time as is necessary to answer your questions. We also encourage parents to return for repeat conferences if other questions arise after. If a repeat visit is recommended, an appointment can usually be arranged with your cardiologist before leaving the office. Your cardiologist will write a comprehensive report and send it to your child’s primary doctor. At OHC, one of our pediatric cardiologists will always be on call for your family and your child’s doctor 24 hours per day, every day of the year.
