Would you like to see one of our cardiologists?
We want your doctor visit as successful and productive as possible. If this is your first time scheduling with a cardiologist at The Polyclinic, we will need:
- A referral from your doctor (primary care provider or another specialist)
- Recent medical records (medical history, scan reports, EKG reports, lab work results, and any other medical studies)
To make your appointment most productive, here are a few things the Patient Service Representative may ask about when you call:
- Do you have a primary care provider (PCP), here at The Polyclinic or elsewhere?
- Who referred you to The Polyclinic Cardiology?
- Have you already received a diagnosis about your condition? If so, what was your diagnosis?
- What imaging and other medical studies have you had done related to this condition? (You will need to have them sent to us prior to your appointment.)
- Are you currently on any medications or undergoing treatment related to this condition?
Once you’ve collected this information, please call The Polyclinic Cardiology at (206) 860-2302 to speak to a Patient Service Representative.
