Garrett 1 (IMAGE) Texas Children's Hospital Caption Texas Children’s Hospital patient Garrett Richardson, 21, meets with his pediatric cardiologist Dr. Jeffrey Kim, Director of the Arrhythmia and Pacing (Electrophysiology) Service at Texas Children’s Hospital, and Professor of Pediatrics-Cardiology at Baylor College of Medicine, for his biannual appointment at the nation’s largest children’s hospital. Dr. Kim has provided medical care for Richardson, a college student in New Orleans, La., since he experienced sudden cardiac arrest as a 13-year-old in 2013. Texas Children’s cardiologists first diagnosed Richardson with Long QT Syndrome — a rare condition that can cause an irregular heartbeat — when he was 2 years old.
