A cardiology consultation is typically requested by your primary care provider or another specialist seeking more information and/or input from a provider specialized in cardiovascular medicine. This consultation may be for many different reasons, such as
- exploring a known diagnosis
- treating an unknown diagnosis but new symptoms
- management of a chronic condition
- a pre-operative cardiac evaluation.
There may also be situations where you, your personal physician, or your regular cardiologist, wish you to have a confirmation of your illness or a second opinion.
