What is a cardiac evaluation?

The initial evaluation of a cardiac patient consists of performing a physical examination and obtaining a medical history. During the physical examination, we look for an underlying cause for symptoms that have presented – such as chest pain or shortness of breath – and assess heart function. The medical history will include questions about heart problems or symptoms, family history, medication use and other medical conditions. We may also request laboratory tests, such as urinalysis or blood tests, in order to identify various conditions.

A cardiology consultation is usually requested by your general internist, family doctor or sometimes another specialist or surgeon when he or she wishes to have a cardiac specialist (cardiologist) use his or her expertise to evaluate you.

Schedule a personalized assessment and find out your treatment options.
