Our Team


Cardiology team

Our pediatric cardiology core team consists of four highly skilled pediatric cardiologists and an experienced pediatric nurse practitioner. They work collaboratively and with colleagues to identify heart diseases, develop and implement a plan of treatment that meets the patient's and family's unique needs, and coordinate follow up — working with a patient from infancy through adulthood.
