FAQs

Do I need a referral?

The type of insurance plan you carry will determine whether you need a referral. Please consult your carrier for details.

Do I need to provide my records or will you obtain them?

Lourdes Cardiology will obtain your medical records on your behalf. However, if you have any records in your possession, please bring them to your appointment.

Do I need to see a particular doctor for a specific diagnosis?

Our physicians do specialize in specific areas of treatment. Please see below a brief description of the types of doctors that comprise our team:

• Clinical Cardiologists treat patients with chest pain, shortness of breath and other common types of symptoms. Patients will typically see a clinical cardiologist first to confirm whether any other diagnosis or treatment is needed.

• Interventional Cardiologists see patients with heart or vascular diagnoses, such as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), peripheral vascular disease (PVD), arterial stenosis, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) or structural heart conditions.

• Electrophysiologists treat patients with cardiac arrhythmias, often more commonly known as atrial fibrillation, tachycardia, syncope or other heart rhythm irregularities.

Do you accept my insurance?

While we accept most insurances, we recommend contacting your insurance company to confirm coverage.
