Dr. John Breinholt is an associate professor and director of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology in the Department of Pediatrics at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).
In practice since 2008, Dr. Breinholt is fluent in Spanish and treats newborns through adults who suffer from congenital heart disease. He understands that parents want their child’s doctor to be accessible and thorough. He doesn’t want them ever to feel alone and uncertain about their child’s heart condition and takes the time necessary to help them feel comfortable taking care of a child with heart disease. From a research perspective, he wants to bring new technologies to patients, particularly the youngest who don’t always have the same options as older patients.
A resident of Missouri City, Dr. Breinholt is married and the father of four children. An active participant in medical missions, he has worked in Bolivia, Ecuador, Ukraine and Uganda over the past several years, treating children with heart disease and training local cardiologists to care for them.
