Frankie has had some serious cardiac issues, and we have had wonderful service with each visit. The whole staff makes you feel like your appointment is top priority.  Frankie might think otherwise, but I know his care is wonderful.

Treatment options range from medical management to minimally invasive procedures using interventional radiology.

  • Cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram including Color Flow Doppler) for non-invasive examination of the heart structure and function
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) for examination of electrical activity of the heart
  • Holter and event monitoring for long-term evaluation of the heart rhythm in the home environment
  • Interventional procedures (PDA, balloon valvuloplasty, diagnostic angiography, intrahepatic shunt, vascular anomalies)
  • Pacemaker implantation
  • Radiographs to examine the size and shape of the heart and lungs
