Examination, New Patients in Oak Ridge, TN

Initial Appointment
Your initial appointment with a cardiac specialist includes a discussion of your medical and related history, a physical examination, and if indicated, any necessary diagnostic testing or procedures.

A new patient visit requires approximately 30 minutes of examination time. We evaluate whether your symptoms are cardiac-related, and whether therapy is indicated. If additional non-cardiac evaluation is needed, we are glad to recommend appropriate specialists and coordinate your care with them.

Return Visits
Subsequent visits usually take 15 minutes of examination time. When you call for your follow-up appointment, relay any address or insurance changes to
our receptionist.

Cancellation Policy
When you make an appointment and are not able to come in, please call us as far in advance as possible to cancel. This allows us to use this time to treat another patient.

Telephone Calls
During office hours, we encourage you to call with any questions you have about your medical condition. Call as early in the day as possible. Our staff is trained to help you, and we ask that you give our receptionist all necessary details concerning your problem.

When your problem is not an emergency, you may leave a message with our receptionist, and the doctor, doctor's assistant, or nurse will return your call as soon as possible. Understand that your doctor may be involved with other patients, and that calls will be returned in as timely a manner as practical.
