After meeting with you and conducting a thorough evaluation of your records, our team will generate a comprehensive report prepared exclusively for you. Each report includes an overview of the cardiovascular team’s opinion of your condition and your medical history, physical examination and testing (including images if appropriate). The report will conclude with our team’s expert opinion about the best treatment option for you.
Physicians in the Second Opinion Center may consult with experts at one of the 10 specialty clinics at The Heart Hospital - Plano Outpatient Services. These clinics give them access to multi-disciplinary teams who focus on subspecialties like heart failure, heart rhythm, heart valve/structural issues and even diabetic wound treatment. Patients will benefit from the expertise of these specialists, ensuring their second opinion has been thoroughly examined.
In addition to an examination of your case, patients may undergo simple or complex diagnostic tests such as:
- CT scans
- Nuclear medicine studies
- Exercise stress testing
- Vascular testing for circulation problems
- Pulmonary function tests
The Second Opinion Center experts may also recommend that patients participate in advanced research studies and clinical trials they qualify for underway at The Heart Hospital – Plano.
