Reasons to See Us
The most common reasons your child would be referred to our office is for the evaluation of a heart murmur or because your primary care physician suspects a possible heart problem. It is important to stress "heart murmur" is not a diagnosis, but simply means an extra sound coming from the heart. Most heart murmurs in children are normal.
Other reasons for referral may include:
Family history of heart problems/disease
High blood pressure/hypertension
Passing out/dizziness (Syncope)
To better understand how a normal heart works, please refer to our explanation of the structure and function of a normal heart.
