Available at our Calgary and Edmonton South locations, we offer full consultation with specialist cardiology (heart) physicians. Cardiovascular consultation is the first step to successful cardiac care and the most important aspect of medical treatment.
It is an opportunity for patients to discuss their cardiac problems, current complaints, as well as understand the risks, and complications. A complete risk assessment will be completed and suggestions to help modify your risk factors will be given. This visit will also help you to understand the various treatment methods, and tests that may be ordered.
During the cardiac consultation, past medical history, physical examination, and tests to assess the risk of developing heart diseases, will be discussed. Early diagnosis may give a better prognosis and minimize any complications.
How to prepare for the consultation
- Carry all necessary medical records to avoid repetition of diagnostic testing
- Discuss your medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications you are taking
- Discuss your lifestyle habits, dietary habits, and your profession (your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with risk for cardiac diseases)
