Division of Pediatric Cardiology

Our cardiologists’ mission is three-fold. We’re committed to the delivery of exemplary clinical care, to advancing research and to training future healthcare professionals — all so that children can have healthier futures.

We are proud to have world-class, compassionate physician faculty members who train the pediatric cardiologists of tomorrow even as they provide a full range of leading-edge pediatric cardiology care for children throughout Orange and south Los Angeles County.

Our UC Irvine Health Cardiopulmonary Clinic in Orange delivers expert medical care in a warm and caring environment for all children with known or suspected heart disease — beginning with prenatal care, continuing through infancy, childhood and adolescence, then transitioning into adulthood. Blending complete cardiovascular care with strong education programs means better healthcare outcomes for today’s children. We also see patients at Gottschalk Medical Plaza on the university campus in Irvine.
