Cardiology Consultation Q & A

What is a cardiology consultation?

A cardiology consultation is a meeting between you and your cardiologist at Mission Heart & Vascular to address any health problems relating to your cardiovascular system.

Your cardiovascular system consists of your heart, arteries, and veins that carry blood around your body. There's a vast number of potential problems that can affect your cardiovascular system, and some have very serious, potentially life-threatening consequences.

If your primary care provider believes you need to see a cardiology specialist, they can refer you for a cardiology consultation at Mission Heart & Vascular. You can always inquire yourself if you have symptoms of a cardiovascular disorder.

What symptoms might require a cardiology consultation?

Some of the symptoms of cardiovascular problems that might require a cardiology consultation include:

  • Chest pain or angina
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations
  • Dizzy spells or fainting
  • Arrhythmia

You might also need to attend a cardiology consultation if there's a history of heart disease in your family or you have other risk factors for heart disease. Diagnostic tests available at Mission Heart & Vascular include EKG, stress testing, echocardiogram, and Holter and event monitoring.

If you have a heart condition or recently suffered a heart attack, you need to attend regular cardiology consultations at Mission Heart & Vascular to monitor your progress.

What conditions are diagnosed and treated during a cardiology consultation?
