Pediatrix Cardiology of South Florida provides comprehensive cardiology care to patients throughout southern Florida. Our pediatric and adult congenital cardiologists treat patients of all ages, including pregnant women and their developing babies, infants, children, adolescents and adults with congenital heart disease.

As the community has changed over the years, the type of patients we see has also changed. While congenital heart disease is still the primary condition we treat, we also assess patients with a wide variety of symptoms, including palpitations, fainting, heart murmurs and chest pain. We screen children and teens prior to sports participation, perform cardiac evaluations for children taking medication for attention deficit disorder, and assess, educate and treat children with high blood pressure or high cholesterol. However, our services aren’t limited to children; we provide cardiac evaluation of the fetus and management of adults with congenital heart disease.

To better serve the community, our group has grown to include more physicians providing services in offices strategically placed within Broward, Martin, Miami Dade, Palm Beach and St. Lucie Counties. We strive to ensure children in our care are always close to home. And when close to home isn’t close enough, we offer telehealth services, when appropriate, to minimize the time you spend at the doctor. We have a cardiologist on call 24/7 to answer questions and address concerns.

In addition to outpatient care, our doctors provide consultative services for fetal, pediatric and adult congenital patients at many hospitals throughout South Florida. We work closely with several pediatric cardiac surgery programs throughout the state, and even elsewhere, to ensure that if your child needs inpatient cardiac care, he or she will receive the best care possible.

Our Approach

Patient and family involvement are very important to us. It helps parents and patients make better decisions and is an essential factor in the success of ongoing care. We strongly encourage and support preventive medicine by offering counseling for and management of hypertension and hypercholesterolemia.

Fetal Cardiology Program

Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect, occurring in 8 out of every 1,000 babies. Of those, one-third will require intervention shortly after birth. To improve detection and outcomes for these fragile babies, we are pleased to offer a Fetal Cardiology Program.

Led by perinatal cardiology expert Dr. James Huhta, our Fetal Cardiology Program gives us the ability to identify cardiac defects before a baby is born. By identifying these problems in advance, expectant parents can make better-informed health care decisions and prepare for delivery.

Dr. Huhta is a leader in diagnosing and treating fetal heart failure and fetal congenital heart disease. He oversees our team of experienced fetal cardiologists throughout South Florida to ensure that all our patients and their families receive the best care possible during this very stressful time.

Congenital Heart Disease Program for Adults

The majority of patients born with congenital heart disease (CHD) survive into adulthood thanks to medical advancements. Today an estimated 1.5 million adults are living with CHD in the United States. Our practice is pleased to provide the expertise and ongoing care needed by this complex group of patients who require lifelong follow-up.

Dr. Todd S. Roth and Dr. David Briston are two of the few fellowship-trained, board certified adult congenital cardiologists in Florida. Dr. Roth also directs the state’s first nationally accredited Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program. The program—one of only 35 in the nation—serves patients from Miami to St. Lucie County.
