Hypertension Clinic

Hypertension in children can damage the heart, kidneys, eyes and brain and is more common than most people suspect. We provide individualized screening and therapy and use non-pharmacologic (diet and exercise) and pharmacologic (blood pressure medications) depending a child’s medical needs. We have full service laboratory (blood and urine testing), imaging (ultrasound, echocardiography and specialized testing) and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring to diagnose the cause of high blood pressure and manage children with the assistance of nurse educators, nutritionist and exercise specialists.
