The modern dedicated pediatric cardiology outpatient office located in the center of the Augusta University Health medical complex, provides a pleasant, child oriented environment for appointments. This area includes much of the diagnostic testing equipment necessary for comprehensive cardiovascular evaluation, so that test results are available at the same clinic appointment. The waiting area is filled with both educational and recreational information and games for all ages.
