Our genetic heart team works closely together to provide you with the best care possible. Our team is made up of cardiologists, surgeons, and a board certified genetic counselor.
All patients are evaluated by a cardiologist. As part of the evaluation, your doctor may order a echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, cardiac MRI or other blood work to fully assess your heart health.
Cardiovascular Genetic Counselor
Our genetic counselor has special training related to genetic or inherited conditions, and she focuses specifically on heart conditions. She helps you understand how a heart condition runs in your family, who might be at risk, and your genetic testing options. She will counsel you and your family on the results of your genetic test and connect you with the medical and supportive resources you need.
In the event that your heart condition may be corrected by surgery, you will meet with a cardiothoracic (heart) surgeon to learn more about the potential surgical procedure, and discuss the benefits and risks of surgery.
