Your heart is worth a second opinion

When you’re facing a serious heart health concern, there’s a lot to think about. Maybe you have a new diagnosis or are trying to make a decision on a treatment plan. Getting a second opinion may help give you peace of mind. To get started, check with your insurance company to find out if a second opinion is covered. Choose one of our experienced cardiovascular specialists, and we can request your medical records on your behalf. Then, together we will review your medical records and healthcare history to answer your questions and discuss options for a personalized heart care plan.
