You will first be seen by a technologist for cardiac testing. Then you will be seen by a cardiac nurse practitioner and/or a cardiologist or cardiac specialist who will provide you with a full cardiac consultation and review of testing. They will also determine your risk for coronary artery disease (CAD) and may suggest further testing or a follow-up appointment.
