Q. How do I refer a follow-up patient for clinical consultation to a Cardiologist at TotalCardiology?
A. If your patient has already been seen by one of our Cardiologists, we recommend referral to the original Cardiologist for better continuity of care. However, we will accommodate your patient in our RACC™ cardiology clinic if the timeline for appointment with the original Cardiologist does not meet the clinical need of your patient.
Q. What if the test I request for my patient has an abnormal finding?
A. At TotalCardiology we are committed to providing rapid and complete cardiac care fast. After reviewing the test results you have the option of requesting a rapid consultation in our RACC™ cardiology clinic or by Tele-cardiology with our next available cardiologists. We also will review your patient's test result quickly and offer an appointment for early consultation. This way neither you nor your patient will have have to worry about finding a Cardiologist and your patients will receive the appropriate care they need at the right time by the right experts.
