Appointment: Pretty much like any other. You will fill out history forms, the assistant or nurse will check blood pressure/heart rate. You will meet with the doctor who will take a detailed history of the symptoms you are having and assess your risk factors. The doc will then order any testing needed to further evaluate your problem, and possibly order labs or medications. There will likely be a follow up.
