What to expect at your first visit
At your first visit, you are greeted by our medical office specialists, who check in the patient and verify that we have all the correct information. This is important, as we want to communicate with your family for future visits or provide additional information as necessary.
Next, a cardiology nurse greets you and your child and shows you to the vitals area to obtain your child's height, weight, and vital signs. The nurse then reviews your child's medical history. Most appointments consist of an EKG (electrocardiogram) and an ECHO (echocardiogram). Both tests are noninvasive and painless ways to evaluate your child's heart. The cardiologist reviews these studies and your child's medical history to determine a diagnosis or follow-up. After, our cardiologist examines your child and thoroughly discusses the results of the testing.
The average length of these cardiology visits is around an hour and a half to two hours.
