Specialties

Dr. James C Huhta has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Parent of two young adult children with congenital heart disease

Dr. Huhta is caring for my two cardiac children, now young adults. He is very responsive and caring, takes the time to discuss exercise choices, etc. He stays on top of things which is very reassuring (times two!)

Wonderful doctor and staff

James Huhta and his staff have been caring for my son since he was 6 hours old. He'll be 3 in August. Wonderful people and outstanding care. I wouldn't dream of taking my son anywhere else for cardio care.

My daughter had severe ebsteins anomoly. Dr.Huhta was great with my husband and I through the pregnancy. We had to travel to his office once a week from southwest florida and he was very understanding and did his best to keep my daughter thriving. Unfortunately she passed away at 23days, but we would have never had that time if it wasn't for Dr.Huhta.
