Daniela Samoil MD - Cardiology Consults LLC

 

 


 


New patient appointments of one hour duration will be scheduled for individuals who have never seen Dr. Samoil or have not returned for 2 years.

These individuals will be asked the reason for seeking cardiac care, and whether they had previous cardiac evaluations.  If so, they will be requested to sign an authorization for release of that information so that the current findings can be judged in the light of previous information.    They need to know the name and contact information of the previous cardiologists or the name of the hospital and dates of hospitalization when the evaluations took place. 

Individuals making new patient appointments will be asked whether they have a primary health care provider, whether their primary provider is aware of the cardiac evaluation requested and whether their insurance plan requires that a referral be initiated by the primary care provider.
