Highly Trained Adult Congenital Heart Care Specialists
We are proud to offer an adult congenital heart disease clinic, in conjunction with St. Joseph Hospital of Orange, with the only board certified adult congenital cardiologists in Orange County. We provide long-term follow-up care for adults with repaired and unrepaired CHD. Many of these patients have a complicated medical history along with many unique medical issues. This clinic is ideally suited to provide the ongoing care for these patients. A close working relationship with our adult cardiology colleagues ensures excellent continuity of care.
Invasive cardiac catheterization procedures for CHD patients have been highly successful. There are a growing number of adults who have had surgery or procedures for CHD. In addition, there are some adults with CHD who remain untreated. These patients need life-long follow-up care with cardiologists who specialize in the care of adults with CHD.
One of our physicians, Dr. James Chu, specializes in treating adults with CHD and is available for consultations.

Sports Participation Cardiac Screening Packages
Our practice is pleased to offer two types of Sports Participation Cardiac Screening Packages. These simple, non-invasive tests can help detect some of the more common heart defects associated with sudden cardiac death in young athletes. Based on each patient’s unique needs, we will recommend one of the following screening options:
- Limited – Limited echocardiogram & EKG
- Complete – Complete echocardiogram & EKG
The limited echocardiogram focuses on structural abnormalities generally associated with sudden cardiac death. This includes hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, assessment of ventricular function and ruling out coronary defects.
In addition to the structural abnormalities, the complete echocardiogram also includes a screening for congenital heart disease and other potential defects, such as holes in the heart.
