Specialties

Dr. Richard A Humes Jr 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.

new born heart beat

Before my daughter was born we found out she had an ASD and a VSD. All of her doctors were prepaered at the time of her birth for anything which was such a relief to me during this scarry time. We saw Dr. Humes from birth to 3 months (time of her surgery). During this time Dr. Humes was so informative, answered all my redundant questions, made our family feel confident and supported, he helped me understand exactly what was wrong and how the surgery worked. Surgery was a success and we still continue to see Dr. Humes for check ups. My daughter is now 3 1/2 years old and in very good health. I would recomened Dr. Humes to other families that need a heart doc. :)
