Frequently Asked Questions

Are your services covered by insurance?

Depending on your insurance coverage, most often the services are covered if you have been diagnosed with congenital heart disease. It is always best to check with your insurance company first.

What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?

  1. You should plan on arriving 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Most appointments at clinic have tests scheduled prior to your medical appointment (echocardiography, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, or radiology imaging). Make sure you know what time your tests are scheduled. Plan on being at the clinic for approximately two hours. Be aware that there are numerous construction projects around the medical center causing traffic delays so allow ample time for travel and parking.
  2. If instructed, please bring the results of any requested laboratory tests.
  3. You will be emailed a patient questionnaire form. Please fill this out and bring it with you to your appointment.
  4. We typically ask that all records related to your congenital heart disease care are mailed or faxed to us prior to your visit. This usually includes clinical notes, imaging reports and possibly discs, surgical and catheterization reports, and hospital discharge summaries. These are then carefully reviewed prior to your appointment and help direct our team in ordering appropriate tests prior to your visit.
