Before seeing any medical specialist, it is always preferable to talk to your own family doctor, who can discuss your condition with you and advise on whether any specialist care is appropriate. If it is, he or she can help you to choose the specialist best suited to your needs. Your family doctor can help the specialist to care for you better by providing relevant information about your health. Communicating with the specialist will also enable your family doctor to care for you better during and after your specialist treatment.
During your initial visit, the doctor will evaluate the appropriate treatment you may need and will review the specific test or procedure indicated based on your diagnosis. Once your test is completed, our providers will advise you of the results and review any additional treatment you may need, if any.
Also, the cardiologist (or provider) will provide a report to your PCP or the referring MD after your visit or test.
