Dr. Stafford R Grady 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.

The Best of the Best*****

Dr. Grady was the best of the best for us. He was called on the first day our daughter was born. He uplifted us when our daughters heart condition sounded difficult. He was always there for us when we needed him. He kept our spirits up with his explanations of her condition and what would need to be done and how it would be done. Dr. Grady never gave up even when others thought maybe we should. Our daughter is 25 years old now...and is such a joy. Thanks Dr. Grady, if you should read this. <3

Nice but not very knowlegeable

My 3 months old son was refereed to Dr. Grady for the evaluation of heart murmur. He had no symptoms and was otherwise healthy. Dr. Grady asked a lot of questions many of them had nothing to do with my son's heart condition. He recommended echocardiogram that was done at the same day in his office. It showed that my son had a small defect in his ventricular septum and told me that my son will need surgery. I was very alarmed and did my own research. It seems that many times small defects close by themselves without treatment. We saw another cardiologist for second opinion who recommended periodic follow up. My son is 4 year old now, his heart is normal and he didn't have any surgeries. I am glad that I didn't listen to Dr. Grady. He is an old doctor and is not familiar with modern medical practices.
