Matters of the Heart, Expertly Managed

Pediatric Cardiology Consultants has been serving the Central Florida community since 1983, with their main office in the heart of Orlando and four satellite offices throughout the region. With over 100 years combined experience, our five board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists have been diagnosing and treating young patients, from before birth to well beyond adolescents, with cardiac abnormalities, both congenital and acquired. Each physician has a unique focus that plays an integral role in creating a comprehensive cardiology center.

What is a Pediatric Cardiologist?

A pediatric cardiologist is a pediatrician specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac abnormalities, both congenital and acquired, that affect mainly individuals in the pediatric age group. The science of pediatric cardiology includes an understanding of how the heart is formed, the functions of the heart, how abnormalities develop and determining how to treat and repair abnormalities medically and surgically. The treatment of congenital heart disease can begin before birth and can continue into adulthood.

What Makes PCC Different?

Over the years, Pediatric Cardiology Consultants has established a main office at the Florida Hospital Orlando Medical Plaza with satellite practices in Melbourne (Viera), Port Orange and Tavares. The practice and expert medical team continue to grow, incorporating new technology as it becomes available to the medical community. We believe in our commitment to maintaining a high standard of excellence through our well-trained and professional staff. Our caring environment enables our practice to strive and deliver individualized care to each of our patients.
