Dr. Jeffrey R Boris 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.

I am 21 years old and have been struggling with POTS since I was 11, and Dr. Boris is the greatest doctor I have ever been to. So kind and a great listener, and immensely intelligent. He is difficult to get an appointment with but that is not surprising seeing as he's one of 2 doctors in the area that specializes in POTS treatment, and also probably due to the fact that he is a gift to the field of medicine and so everyone wants an appointment with him. If you are in need of a cardiologist I would definitely recommend waiting a little longer for an appointment with him because he can change your life. I went from being bedridden for 2 years to being an active and involved college student with a 4.0, and it would not have been possible without Dr. Boris.
Dr. Boris has been instrumental in helping my daughter with POTS. He has been so compassionate and has told my daughter that although he can't cure her, he will do everything that he can to help treat her symptoms. He has told her that he won't give up if she doesn't. He has given her hope to live her life to the fullest. I have researched other hospitals and had planned to take her to the Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins or NYU before realizing how blessed we are to have Dr. Boris right here in Bucks County.
