Cardiology consult: Left ventricular hypertrophy on echo and an abnormal ECG should be eval'd by cardiology who can help decide if this is truly abnormal or if it is due to an "athlete's heart", or a normal variant. A detailed family history will be needed -- be prepared. Patients are often nervous at the time of a consult. Bring a list of questions, and another person or pen & paper to take notes.
