1. How much time does a new patient visit take?  A new patient visit can take up to 2 hours.
  2. What should I bring with me to my first visit?  On your first visit you need to bring in your insurance card, driver’s license, a list of your current medications (or the actual bottles of medications), and a copy of your most recent labs.
  3. How much time does a follow up appointment take?  A follow up appointment can take any where from 30-90 minutes.
  4. Do I have to pay a co-payment every time I come to the office?  If your insurance plan requires a co-payment, you will be expected to pay each time you see the provider and/or mid-level.  The amount of your co-pay can usually be found on the front of your insurance card.  A specialist co-pay  may be higher than what you normally pay to your primary care physician.
  5. What is interventional cardiology?  Interventional cardiology refers to various non-surgical procedures for treating cardiovascular disease.
  6. What is non-invasive cardiology?  Noninvasive cardiology focuses at improving the blood supply to the heart without any form of invasive surgeries and alternating the blood chemistry.
  7. Is a referral required for my visit?  If a referral is required, our staff will be responsible for obtaining it.  This is why it is very important that you provide our new patient coordinator with all of your insurance information and primary care physician when you make your initial appointment.  It is also very important that you notify our office of any changes in your insurance.
  8. Can I get my test results over the phone?  No results will be given over the phone.  An appointment will be made for a follow up visit to receive your test results.
  9. Is there a charge to have forms filled?  There is a $35 fee to have forms filled out by the doctor.  Please allow at least a week for these forms to be completed.
  10. What do I do if I need a refill on my medications?  We recommend that you call your pharmacy to request a refill.  They will either fax over a request or send an electronic request.
