Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Maxwell "A patient and family's relationship with us often begins before birth, by way of discovery of a concern for a fetal heart problem during an OB visit, or during a fetal ultrasound when we are asked to perform a fetal echocardiogram. Often the relationship begins when we are called urgently to the attend to a newborn in the nursery.  Our practice covers 7 newborn nurseries in the East Bay and we are on-call 24/7/365 to respond to any emergency suspected of being a cardiac issue. Still other relationships begin when a healthy child or young person feels the onset of symptoms or when their doctor detects something not quite right. "
