At the UC Davis Pediatric Heart Center, your primary cardiologist is backed by a team of committed doctors, nurses, social workers, dieticians, and child life specialists from Cardiology, Surgery, Critical Care and Neonatology. This team approach provides better outcomes for our patients because they share a common goal – improving the welfare of your child.  With five cardiologists on the team, you won’t have to wait for a clinic appointment. Partnering with the UC Davis Pediatric Heart Center also gives you the option of several locations to be seen, so you can pick a clinic close to you.

These locations include a total of six cities in Northern California; Sacramento, Roseville, Redding, Chico, Yuba City and Stockton. We look forward to caring for your child and providing some of the most sophisticated specialty and surgical expertise in Northern California. With our state of the art PCICU and multiple clinic locations, you can stay close to home and get world class care.

Please call the UC Davis Pediatric Heart Center at 916-734-3456 to schedule your next appointment with any one of our celebrated cardiologists.
