YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION

What will happen at your first visit?

You will see the cardiologist first and discuss your symptoms or concerns and have a physical examination. The cardiologist will usually proceed with an ECG and recommend what other advanced testing would be advisable - please see our Tests and Procedures page.

The testing may take up to an hour. During testing you will be supervised by the doctor and cardiac sonographer who will monitor your heart rate and blood pressure. When all the testing is complete, the cardiologist will review the results with you and discuss future steps. Your overall consultation time will be approximately 1-1/2 hours.
