You were referred to our office after a visit with your child’s pediatrician or family doctor for further evaluation by a pediatric cardiologist. Common reasons for referrals include:
♥ heart murmurs
♥ syncope (fainting)
♥ chest pain
♥ electrocardiogram (EKG) or echocardiogram (echo) results requiring further analysis/evaluation
♥ clearance for participation in a sport
♥ family history of congenital heart disease
The physician may order a test during the visit to be completed here at Pediatric Cardiology Center of Oregon and the results to be reviewed before you leave the office. These tests may include:
Upon completion of the test the physician will sit down with you to discuss the results and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Further evaluation, if necessary, will be determined at that time.
TIP: Boys and girls may want to wear shirts that open in the front with buttons for ease of exams and tests. Gowns are offered for female patients; they are available for male patients as well.
