Cardiology consultations at Samuel Family Cardiology are an essential part of the process of diagnosing and treating heart conditions. They are also crucial in the patient education process, where our doctors can advise you on specific lifestyle and dietary modifications necessary for aiding recovery.
Your primary care physician may request a cardiology consultation if you have a known cardiac problem or heart condition. A cardiac evaluation may also be needed as part of your annual check-up after a certain age.
Our team of experienced cardiologists is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality care for all of your cardiovascular needs.
Cardiology consultations are a useful health tool for patients who have no known heart issues but have some amount of risk due to family history. In such cases, cardiac evaluations can help in the early detection of conditions that may lead to heart problems down the road.
Many cardiovascular diseases are preventable. You can learn about your risk for developing a cardiovascular disease by undergoing a few tests to check the functioning of your heart. A cardiac consultation is, therefore, a preventative measure that allows your heart to be monitored for any changes over time.
Ideally, every adult should undergo periodic cardiology consultations, irrespective of their current health status. This is because heart conditions do not always have obvious symptoms in their early stages. Regular consultations on an annual basis can detect possible problems before they become more severe and allow for early intervention.
Dr. John and Paulraj Samuel at Samuel Family Cardiology work with you to develop a treatment and lifestyle plan to lower your risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
You can take a few steps to prepare for your consultation and ensure you get the most out of the process.
- Take note of all medications you are taking.
- Bring reports from recent medical exams and tests.
