Dr. Steven Reisman’s cardiac team can give you an independent and thorough second opinion of your diagnosis. We will provide you with the most up to date treatment option, review you cardiac testing and / or stress testing assessments, etc. and thoroughly discuss our educated findings with you and all your options.
If you have been diagnosed with a heart condition, it is essential to consider every alternative. That’s why we offer the Second Opinion Program – to provide you with immediate access to the most talented cardiac diagnostic testing services in NYC.
We welcome the opportunity to provide a second opinion on your diagnosis or treatment plan. Our cardiology team are truly at the forefront of medicine, and can offer options not widely available at most hospitals and cardiac testing and diagnosis centers in NYC.
Why seek a second opinion at the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center?
Perhaps you’re not feeling confident about your doctor’s decisions. Maybe you’re feeling rushed. Other reasons to get a second opinion include:
- Your insurance company may require it before covering your treatment.
- You may have options — including not needing the medicine or procedure, or one being less expensive than another.
- You’re concerned about the risk or how it might affect your lifestyle, family or work.
We are honored to collaborate with the patient and the referring primary-care physician to discuss cardiac treatment options related to preventive measures and acute cardiac conditions needing attention. In addition, our experts are able to provide assistance to patients seeking a second opinion. Patients seeking a second opinion by our cardiologist will be evaluated through:
- Thorough physical examination and review of patient’s medical history to determine risk factors
- Advanced diagnostic tools, such as MRI, CT, echocardiograms and home monitoring, to better determine the patient’s condition
- Medical management techniques and lifestyle modifications to improve quality of life
- Preventive measures and assessments for asymptomatic patients who may be at higher risk for developing cardiac disease
- A consultation with the cardiac specialist
What do I bring to the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center to seek a second opinion?
Before you visit the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center, have your records forwarded to us. Better yet, get a full set and bring them with you.
- Also, be sure to come with specific questions. The more specific your questions, the more focused your meeting, the better the second opinion will be.
- You should also bring a pad and pen to write down important things, and consider having a significant other to sit and listen (and not talk).
- When you’re done, ask the doctor and his team to send their to you and your doctor.
