Specialties

Dr. David J Waight has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

One of a kind!

Dr Waight is very professional. He is kind, he takes time to explain. He allowed time to ask questions. I actually look forward to our office visits with him.

Closing a PDA

We kind of went through this process a little backwards, having rushed our daughter to have an echo done due to a new found murmur with a high fever by our pediatrician. So, Dr. Waight was not the original doctor we met with-- but he would be the one to perform the cath to close our daughter's PDA. When we first met Dr. Waight, it was not a "scheduled" meeting- he was very kind and tried and tried to "make up" with our daughter, but she was being very shy. It is nerve racking enough having to have your child have any type of procedure, but after talking with Dr. Waight before the actual procedure, I felt much more at ease. He was very thorough before and then after showing us exactly what he did to correct her PDA, and explaining everything he did and why he did it. We were very pleased with Dr. Waight and his entire staff. We thank you, Dr. David Waight!
