Planning Your First Visit

Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center

In order to provide the best care possible for our patients, we require two weeks to collect and review your charts and prepare for your office visit.

Patients have two options when planning your first visit to the Adult Congential Heart Disease Center.  Appointments can be made at either Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC or UPMC Presbyterian. Choose the location that is most convenient for you - the expertise is the same.
