A visit to a doctor can create anxiety in anyone. However, when the patient is a child and they are told to see a heart doctor, it can be very upsetting to both the patient and parent.
Dr. Donald Putman and his team at Metro Pediatric Cardiology Associates aim to keep visits as stress-free for children and their parents as possible while maintaining an upbeat, engaging, and family centered approach. Dr. Putman performs non-invasive studies, including in-office electrocardiograms and echocardiograms, and provides referrals for cardiac catheterization and pediatric cardiac surgery (http://www.njfamily.com).
“We do a lot of talking. We’ve never had anyone complain that we didn’t answer their questions, or they didn’t have enough time with their physician,” says Dr. Putman.
A board certified Pediatric Cardiologist and Division Chief Pediatric Cardiology at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ, Dr. Putman received his medical degree at St. George’s University School of Medicine. He completed his residency and fellowship at New York University/Bellevue Medical Center. Dr. Putman is also the Director of cardiac screening for the Matthew Morahan Center for Athletic Screening.
