Susan Saleeb

My entrance into medicine stemmed from personal loss and my own experience as a young patient.  

Having been on the other side of the room, and now, having children of my own, help me understand the perspective of concerned families. Needing a visit with a Pediatric Cardiologist is anxiety-provoking; my goal is for every patient and parent to leave relieved, no matter the circumstance.
