Specialties

Dr. Thomas J Shula has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

I met Dr Shula when my son was 4 hours old. He was born with a defect in his aortic valve. Dr Shula explained everything simply so we could understand. His one on one skills during this scary time were over and above what was expected. We now only have to see him once a year for a follow up. He is our hero and so glad he is in our area. Thanks Dr Shula

Dr. Shula is a fantastic doctor. I am a nurse but my husband is not very familiar with medical terminology and when our son was born with a heart murmur, Dr. Shula spent the time with us, explained everything so my husband could understand, and answered any questions we had. His bedside manner is exceptional. I would recommend him to anyone.

He was able to diagnose my son when no one else including Children's in Chicago could. Finally after he did diagnose him with Neurocardiogenic Instability a second opinion confirmed it.
