Patient Experience Scheduling an Appointment
Depending on your insurance, you may need a referral to see a cardiothoracic surgeon. This referral usually comes from your cardiologist.
You may also receive a referral from your primary care doctor or make a self-referral.
Please check with your insurance company to determine which route you should take to ensure coverage.
For a self-referral call 855-CUSURGE.
The next step in making an appointment is to call the surgeon's office directly:
Please arrive on time for your appointment and bring any films or x-rays with you (cardiac catherization films, chest x-rays, etc.).
You should also bring a list of your medications and the dosage.
