WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR CARDIAC CONSULTATION
When you come to Louisiana Heart Center for a cardiac consultation you can expect a thorough examination from a cardiologist who understands both the physical and emotional side of cardiac care. Before you meet with the cardiologist, a nurse will review your information with you and will perform an EKG (Electrocardiogram) which is a simple, painless test that records the heart’s electrical activity. Your cardiologist will perform a complete exam of your heart and vascular system. The doctor will discuss his findings, and make you aware of his recommendations which may include medication for further treatment and/or testing.
