Within Wesley Pediatric Specialists, you will find our Pediatric Cardiology Clinic. You may be referred to this clinic by your child's primary care provider or may follow up here after a stay in the hospital. Children with known or suspected heart disease may be seen here by one of our two board-certified pediatric cardiologists who will provide an assessment and plan of care for your child and family. From fetal life throughout childhood, our cardiologists will provide follow-up visits and coordination of care to provide the best treatments for your child's diagnosis.

First-time visitors: What to expect

At your first visit, your family will be greeted by our medical office specialists who will assist with checking the patient in and verifying that we have all correct information for the patient. This is very important so that we are able to communicate with your family for future visits/communications. Next, a cardiology nurse will greet the child and family and show them to the vitals area where they will obtain your child's height, weight, and vital signs. The nurse will take the child and family to the next room where they will review your child's medical history with you. Most appointments will consist of an EKG (electrocardiogram) and an ECHO (echocardiogram); two non-invasive and painless procedures used to evaluate your child's heart. The cardiologist will review these studies and your child's medical history in order to determine a diagnosis/follow-up. The cardiologist will examine your child and discuss the results of testing thoroughly at this appointment. The average length of these cardiology visits are around an hour and a half to two hours.
