Your Visit

Before Your Visit

Please contact our clinic to verify that Baylor Scott & White Cardiology Consultants of Texas accepts your health insurance before your visit.  This will assure that your paperwork will go smoothly since patients' plans change over time.  Please have your insurance care on hand when you contact us so we can verify your coverage.

On the Day of Your Visit

On your first visit, the cardiologist will want to get a thorough personal history from you, and most likely will want to conduct a physical examination.  Depending on the findings of the tests and history, the doctor will want to go over various additional testing and treatment plan options.

Specific information on tests and treatment plans can be found in the front of your patient information and education booklet or from your physician.
