How to make an appointment:
To book an appointment with Cardiology call 1-888-683-2778 press option 3, then 5, then 1.
My provider is _insert name_, can I make a follow up appointment?
For Active Duty: Yes, let me see what providers are available.
For others (Family members/Retirees): Upon review, it looks like you need a new consult and the Chief will review if we can meet access to care or if we have the capability to help assist you. For VA: At this time, all consults are being deferred to the VA for evaluation and treatment.
My provider _insert not cardiology doctor_ ordered tests, can the cardiologist call me with the results?
Unfortunately, we only perform the tests. You will have to call the providers office that ordered the tests for the results.
My Cardiologist has left, can another Cardiologist refill my medication?
For Active Duty: Yes.
For others: You will have to contact your Primary Care Manager (PCM) to help assist you with the refill. I do recommend establishing care with a network cardiologist for continuity of care and ease of medication refills.
