Specialties

Dr. Thomas E Becker 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.

Terrific Cardiologist!

Dr. Becker is an amazing doctor. At our first appointment he was in the room with us for 30 minutes! He explained everything in great detail and made sure we understood all the information before he left. Also, when I have to call his office with a concern, he calls me back directly! Most clinics have a nurse return calls. He is great with my daughter. I couldn't be happier with the service we get from Dr. Becker. I would recommend him to an parent.

My daughter has actually been seen by Dr. Becker since before she was born as her heart defect was diagnosed prenatally. She is now 12 yrs old. We love Dr. Becker & all the other wonderful staff in their office that we have been seeing for the past 12+ years!
