The Division of Pediatric Cardiology at Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) and the Phyllis and David Komansky Children's Hospital is an integral part of the Congenital Heart Center of NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital.
Our cardiology team is dedicated to the pre-natal and post-natal diagnosis, management and treatment of a wide range of cardiac conditions, including:
Congenital Heart Disease
Other forms of heart disease that affect fetuses, neonates, children and/or young adults
Additionally, our extended team of pediatric cardiologists at Weill Cornell Medicine provide care for adult patients whose heart disease is either congenital in origin or acquired during childhood (including rheumatic fever, Kawasaki disease and others).
Easy Access and Extended Evening Hours
At Weill Cornell we understand how worrisome the thought of a potential heart problem in your child can be. As such, if requested by you, we are usually able to offer for your child to be seen within 36 hours of requesting an appointment.
We also understand that life is busy, and work as well as school schedules often make it difficult for you and your child to attend our clinic during regular hours. As such, we offer evening clinics on most Tuesday and Thursdays in addition to regular daytime clinics.
What Sets Us Apart
Our pediatric cardiologists are affiliated with the Congenital Heart Center at NYP — the highest-ranked center within the New York metropolitan area providing cardiac services for pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease.
WCM cardiologists specialize in transcatheter interventions and non-invasive imaging, dedicating themselves to continuous quality improvement and transparent outcome reporting.
Many cardiology tests can be performed on the same day as your visit. If a transthoracic echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) is needed, it will be performed during your visit in our office (either before or after seeing your physician).
Test results will be reviewed with you, and your cardiologists are available to answer questions during your visit. Sometimes, further testing will be provided (such as 24 hour Holter monitoring), or a return visit may be needed for additional tests (such as exercise stress testing).
Following the visit, our physicians remain available to you by phone for discussion regarding final testing results and/or ongoing symptoms.
