Children’s Heart Specialists provides non-invasive cardiac care to Kentucky's newborns, children, adolescents, and young adults.
We also provide medical services to a selected group of adults with pacemakers/defibrillators and congenital heart disease. We evaluate patients referred to us with heart murmurs, chest pain, hypertension, palpitations, fast or irregular heartbeats, cholesterol problems, fainting, congenital heart defects, pacemakers, Long QT syndrome and dysautonomia.
Our physician, Juan Villafañe, MD, has been practicing pediatric cardiology in the Commonwealth of Kentucky since 1986. Dr. Villafañe specializes in congenital heart defects, non-invasive cardiac electrophysiology, and pacemakers/defibrillators.
Our Echocardiogram Laboratory is the first one in the region to be accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), which is supported by the American College of Cardiology, the American Society of Echocardiography and the Society of Pediatric Echocardiography.
Our full-time certified echocardiographer specializes in children and adults with congenital heart defects. Our staff is certified in CPR and is bilingual. Our main facility has a stress test room, pacemaker analyzer, defibrillator, Holter scanner, EKG machines, transtelephonic memory event recorders, and state-of-the-art echocardiogram equipment. We strive for excellence in service and quality care. All patients are seen within a few days of referrals or immediately if it is necessary. We participate with most insurance providers.
The trust and confidence placed in us by our referring physicians and their patients is highly valued by Dr. Villafañe and staff.
