Specialties

Dr. Thomas J Weigel 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.

Experience, kindness and precise diagnosis.

Fantastic Doctor. I could go to a pediatric cardiologist closer to me but I would rather drive the two hours it takes to get to his office and be fully confident in my child's progress than anything else.

Five Stars

Since birth, 26 years, I've been a patient of Dr. Weigel's. He is the reason I am alive today. Not only is he caring and professional at the same time, but he is also extremely intelligent. He has gone above and beyond in his training for medicine, and in that respect, provides to patients what every doctor should; time, understanding, and the roads to your best health. Thank you for Doctor Weigel!
