Be Proactive in Your Health Care By Getting a Qualified Second Opinion
Are you wondering if a heart disease diagnosis you were given is accurate? Do you want to know every treatment option for your condition? Would you feel better to hear that a second physician supports your recommended treatment plan?
The Cardiology Associates of South Florida offers knowledgeable second opinions for patients who have received an initial diagnosis of a heart or vascular illness. You can arrange a consultation with an expert cardiologist or surgeon who can give you peace of mind when it comes to managing your heart health and moving forward with treatment.
Why a Second Opinion?
➤ Get confirmation of your diagnosis and treatment plan so you can have confidence in your care.
➤ Learn about alternative treatments that may be effective for you.
➤ Determine if you could benefit from less-invasive treatment options than the one you were initially given.
➤ If you were told that interventional or surgical treatment wasn’t possible, we offer options your current physician may not.
➤ Second opinions may prevent the expense and discomfort of an unnecessary procedure.
