A Partnership from the Heart for the Heart

Who We Play For (WWPF) is proud to partner with AdventHealth for Children to provide heart screenings for student athletes and students across Central Florida. WWPF’s mission is to eliminate preventable sudden cardiac death in the young through affordable heart screenings.

Our practice offers ECG screening appointments, where all scans will be reviewed by our experienced cardiologists. Athletes whose ECGs are found to be abnormal can be seen for a full evaluation by our cardiologists, often at the same visit.

ECG screenings are offered with an easy $15 self-pay option that does not require a separate referral.
