The visit at Kardio Glattal usually takes place following these steps:
Your visit will be scheduled by your home physician or yourself. If possible, we ask you to send us your previous medical reports electronically, via fax or mail. Otherwise, please take them with you. Please reserve 90 Minutes for the visit with us. Upon request, you can be accompanied by a confidant throughout the examination.
Before your visit
For your visit we ask you to bring your insurance card, list of current medications, comfortable clothing and shoes for exercise testing.
First you will have a detailed conversation with Dr. Osranek where you will be asked about your symptoms and other medial information. Dr. Osranek will explain you the planned examinations.
The physician assistant will take your administrative information, vital parameters and perform any necessary blood draws.
Usually the physician assistant will first record a resting electrocardiogram (ECG). Further tests, such as physical exam, cardiac ultrasound and exercise testing on a bicycle or treadmill will be performed by Dr. Osranek. Afterwards there is a possibility for you to take a shower.
Dr. Osranek will explain you the test results in a comprehensible fashion and decide together with you on any necessary advanced tests and therapy. The test results and our consultation report will be mailed to your referring physician and upon your request also to you.
Electronic patient file
Occasionally, test results obtained by us are relevant for your optimal care in a medical emergency. If this is the case we exclusively offer you a copy of your medical file on a USB memory card, free of charge. This card be be easily carried with you in your wallet at all times.
