Pediatric Cardiology Experience
Dr. Bhurtel’s pediatric cardiology experience brings new areas of expertise to the Cedar Rapids area, including: sedated pediatric transthoracic echocardiograms and pediatric transesophageal echocardiograms.
Why did you choose pediatric cardiology?
I became a physician to help others and strives for excellence. I chose pediatric cardiology as my specialty based on an experience I had during medical school. “I was taking care of an 11 year old girl with unrepaired cyanotic congenital heart disease. With a prompt diagnoses and surgery she received a new beginning. This early experience played a role in my decision to go into pediatric cardiology.”

In addition to his specialty, Dr. Bhurtel is passionate about fetal and neonatal echocardiography. As a provider he strives for excellence and finds motivation each day from interacting with children and caring for their heart condition.
