Schedule Your Cardiology Appointment Today
We pride ourselves on preventing serious cardiac conditions as much as possible. But, as cardiologists we still help to take care of patients with serious and complicated medical conditions. We know that your time is valuable and try to disprove the reputation that doctors have for keeping patients waiting. We do our best to predict how long each patient will need with the doctor during their visit and we leave openings in our schedule to accommodate unexpected problems as they arise. Despite this, as cardiology is a field prone to life and death emergencies requiring us to prioritize care, there still can occasionally be delays in the schedule and ask for your patience and understanding if and when they occur. In rare instances, it might be necessary to cancel and/or reschedule an appointment with little or no notice. We realize that should you ever find yourself as the one in need of our emergency care at the hospital or office or extra time with the doctor, you would be grateful that others understood while waiting. We appreciate your understanding and will try to accommodate your needs as best as we can.
We encourage you, during office visits, to ask for a full explanation of your medical problems. Do not leave with unanswered questions. You have a complete right to ask for all that we can answer concerning your condition. Please do understand however, that for more complex cases, it might be necessary to schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss other non-urgent questions at a later time.
Appointment Cancellation Policy
How many times have you attempted to schedule an appointment with your doctor or for a test in the office, only to find out that the schedule is full? Unfortunately, some patients are unable to keep their scheduled appointments without calling us or canceling. This problem decreases our ability to see patients like you, when you need to see your doctor urgently.
If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, we certainly will understand, but please kindly notify us at least 24 hours in advance.
Remember that a no show appointment (or calling at the last minute to cancel or reschedule an appointment) takes an opportunity away from those who need to see their doctor or have a test done urgently. And maybe next time, that will be you. If you are going to be late for an appointment, please call as soon as possible and we will try to accommodate you as best as we can.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
