Re: who would check my test

Karlie, I had an echocardiogram done several days ago. The technician that did it had 23 years experience but was careful not to tell me anything (and I was fishing for information). She said the echo would be interpreted by the cardiologist and he would call me with the results. When he called me a few days later, I had a list of questions for him and he took the time to answer all of my questions. Hope this helps, and good luck! Rob.

Re: who would check my test

The Cardiologist looks over the tests and then depending on the DR, the DR might call you at home and go over the results, or they might want you in for an appointment to go over the test, or the nurse will call you and traslate what the DR said about the Echo.. but if the patient has alot of questions... I am most possitive that the DR calls.. The tech is not allowed to answer questions, because if they gave out wrong info, they could be looking at a lawsuit, so they are careful these days.

If you have alot of questions for the Cardiologist, I suggest you booking an appointment to talk about your echo, so he can explain what's going on.

Hopes this helps
