During the Appointment

During your appointment, the cardiologist will review your medical history and complete a physical examination to understand your specific concerns. The cardiologist may order immediate tests based on this information.

After A Procedure

What happens after a procedure depends on the nature of your procedure. You will usually return home the same day after most noninvasive procedures. If a test is strenuous, the medical staff may ask you to remain until they make certain your vital signs have returned to normal. After minimally invasive procedures, you may have to spend a night or two in the hospital, depending partly on how quickly you recover. The cardiology staff will schedule follow-up visits weeks or months later, based on the procedure and your general health
