Dr. James Y Sim 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.
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.

When we entered the office my husband and I felt like we went through a time portal into the 80s. There is a small 10" box tv on a big wooden table, all the chairs in the waiting room are mismatched, there is a little tikes table with a disgusting wooden toy on it, and worst of all the walls. The walls are a wood paneling that at first glance you wouldn't think anything except how outdated, as we sit there waiting for our newborn baby appt we notice a discoloration on the walls. My husband gets up and gets a better look and confirms that it is mildew ALL OVER the walls. he is repulsed and wants to leave right away, I was eager to find out my daughters condition so we stayed for the appt. the nurse took us back to the exam rooms, she did not introduce herself and she did not wash her hands. The exam room was cluttered and OLD. Again mismatched fabric chairs, file cabinets in the exam rooms, all the cabinets and exam bed were very old and had Rust speckles on them. I did not sit down. The doctor came in and he was nice but again did not introduce himself and did not wash his hands. We were told to follow up in 6 months but we will be finding another office. If it weren't for the unsanitary condition of the office we may consider going back.
