There : There are several excellent cardiologists in seattle and the surrounding areas, many of whom would be very capable of managing these conditions. But, they may not all be available within your health insurance plan. I would recommend that you ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a cardiologist that they know and trust. Don't be afraid to be your own advocate, and make sure that your cardiologist is an expert in the area of care you require. If you are concerned they are not, you can be referred elsewhere.

If this is the case, you will want to make sure you are seeing an experienced surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
