Dr. Mark W. Cocalis is a pediatric cardiologist who provides a wide range of care for heart conditions. He is experienced in diagnosing fetal problems, caring for newborns and managing chronic conditions in older children.

Cocalis earned his medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He completed a residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in pediatric cardiology at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
