Step 2: The Day of Your Appointment
Our clinic is offers a convenient patient experience that groups all necessary
pre-procedural assessments, including a frailty screening, lab work and
pre-procedure testing (which may include carotid ultrasound, pulmonary
function screening and a CT scan). You may also need to be scheduled for
a cardiac catheterization at a later date. A volunteer will help escort
you to and from your testing areas.
You will also meet with our Structural Cardiologist, Structural Nurse Practitioner/Coordinator,
Cardiothoracic surgeon and nurse navigator. They will conduct a thorough
examination and review your records, condition, imaging studies and treatment
options with you. Our interactive consult rooms provide multiple teaching
tools for your physician to review your medical images. You can also learn
more about specific surgical techniques and medical concepts.
Together we will design a personalized treatment plan for you.
