I guess no one has needed a ped cardiologist. Oh well. It seriously seems like we need an act of congress to get in to see TCH Cardiology!

If you're going through insurance, your insurance company should be able to get you a referral to a specialist. If not, can your regular Pediatrician call the practice and ask if they can get your LO in sooner? Sometimes, the doc-to-doc connection works better.

Good luck!

Thank you for the reply. The ped is already invovled and has "requested" an appointment with a TCH specialist. It's complicated.

Did you find a cardiologist? I have a friend whose son just had open heart surgery at Children's Memorial-Herrman. If you'd like, I'd be happy to find out the name for you.

Thank you for the reply. They were able to get a follow-up with TCH. I never realized how crazy that process is. Their ped is not a TCH dr and, therefore, they had to get referrals sent by their ped to TCH Cardiology. Which is crazy since the baby was at TCH ER for this issue.

Which brings up the issue of finding a TCH ped that they can go to for routine things. They live in Copperfield. Anyone know any decent TCH drs on this side of town?
