New to this message board. Daughter has Aortic Stenosis, her last cardiologist up and left without giving us a referral. (Dr. Bricker, Houston, TX). So , we saw someone new last year but he just didn't seem to have time for her, visit felt rushed/ I guess this doctor was having a bad day. Anyway now we need a cardiologist. Anyone know of someone good here in Houston, TX in Pediatric Cardiology??? Don't really want to go to Texas Children's , because they charge an arm and a leg for a echocardiogram($1700) of which we'd have to pay $500. We don't qualify for assistance, just trying to make ends meet.
Any help would be Appreciated

I dont know if this is going to help you or not...or if they provide children services.  But I imagine you could call their clinic and seek a referral from them to a children's cardiologist.  I live in Missouri so I am not going to be much help...sorry Chartreux! eyes
