Dr. GoodBear Zone Level 4 JM-476

The Pediatric Cardiology Team provides care to infants, children, and adolescents with genetic cardiac conditions, cardiac complications and cardiac defects that require medical management.
The care team includes pediatric cardiologists, nurse clinicians, CVT technologists, a social worker, and administrative staff.
You will find that a visit to the Children's Heart Centre is like visiting any doctor's office for a check-up. At the Heart Centre, your child's heart will be assessed by the specially trained staff using the most up-to-date equipment available.
When you arrive, you will be greeted by members of the Heart Centre team who want to make your visit as pleasant as possible. They will check to make sure we have all the information and will weigh and measure your child. Your Child will then be examined by at least one doctor who will also ask further questions.
If tests are necessary, they will be performed at the time of your visit. If we anticipate the need for tests, they may be performed before your child sees the doctor. Tests may include electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart), exercise test, or chest x-ray.
