  • Professor, Pediatrics
  • Director, Pediatric Echocardiography

Biography

Dr. Michael Brook is the director of the Pediatric Echocardiography Laboratory and a pediatric cardiologist. He is particularly interested in transesophageal and contrast echocardiography and the assessment of ventricular function by echocardiography. He also is interested in digital echocardiography and in computer applications of cardiology. Brook sees outpatients at the clinic based in Santa Rosa, Calif.

A graduate of Marquette University, he received his medical training from the University of Wisconsin. He completed a general pediatric residency in 1989 at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and a postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric cardiology at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in 1992, when he joined the UCSF faculty.
