I am looking for atop rated cardiologist who specializes in congestive heart failure and valve replacement. Please give me name also what hospital in seattle wa specializes in cardiology. Thank you.

I am looking for atop rated cardiologist who specializes in congestive heart failure and valve replacement.  Please give me name also what hospital in seattle wa specializes in cardiology.  Thank you.

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. It is also important to understand that cardiologists do not perform valve surgery. If indeed you do require a surgical valve replacement, you would be referred to a cardiac surgeon. If this is the case, you will want to make sure you are seeing an experienced surgeon. ...Read more

Then ask your family doc (plus family & friends) who s/he likes. Finally, consider academic centers & athletic teams. ...Read more

In order for: Oral dissolution agents to work, your gallbladder must be functional. And it takes up to 2 years to dissolve stones. And you can develop liver problems from med. And your chances of developing an acute attack during those two years is pretty high. For these reasons, medical treatment is usually not recommended unless you are a prohibitive surgical or anesthetic risk. ...Read more

What can ido if bloodwork shows marked polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia?? I don't have apt with liver specialist until june...

Best thing to do is-: nothing until you have a diagnosis. Polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia is non specific and simply indicates the immune system is activated. This is normal with many infectious and inflammatory diseases. It does not need to be treated per se and bears little relationship to the severity of the underlying disease. It will resolve when the underlying disease resolves. ...Read more

Fatty tissue found on live found via ultrasound at ER on tuesday, enlarged liver and no health insurance. Can i wait to see a specialist?

Fatty tissue found on live found via ultrasound at ER on tuesday, enlarged liver and no health insurance. Can i wait to see a specialist?

Yes: I'd start with a good general physical and lab evaluation by a primary doctor. Steatosis, or fatty infiltration of the liver, can be seen in people who are overweight, are diabetic, or have high cholesterol/triglycerides. You may not need anything more than a weight loss program or management of your cholesterol. Start at the beginning, and don't panic. Good luck. ...Read more

My husband has a liver lision, should he see a specialist because 2years back he had testicular cancer and now his prostate is also calcifying?

Unrelated: Testicular cancer usually recurs in the first two years or not at all. Most liver lesions found incidentally are nothing. The radiologist can probably say. Some guys get calcifications in the prostate and this almost never means anything. If your primary care physicain isn't worried, I'm not either. Your husband is fortunate to have you. ...Read more

Best probiotic for ibs? Also do probiotics affect the liver for the good too? Alt^, no cause determined. ;extensive tests, waiting for specialist help.

"best" probiotics: Like all the newest, latest, and greatest highly touted "natural" medications, probiotics have become very popular. However, none have been shown in independent testing to be of any efficacy for a "normal" bowel, let alone one with inflammatory symptoms. You should first obtain a diagnosis--as "ibs" is not a diagnosis at all--rather than self medicating. Good luck. ...Read more

What would be one of the first things a GI specialist would do for patient who's liver enzymes are running around 120. I think it is ALT  or albritium?

Liver is in Trouble: First the doctor would have you stop all products toxic to the liver. They would also test you for various infections and other things known to cause liver trouble. They should advise you to never use any product with tylenol (acetaminophen) or Acetaminophen again and to stop any alcohol you may be using. ...Read more

I have had an enlarged liver&spleen for several months.Specialists trying to figure out why.Woke up this morn w/swollen feet.Should i call doctor?

Yes: This new symptom may help give a clue as to your issue with the enlarged liver and spleen. In addition it likely represents either leaky vessels from inflammation or excessive pressure in the veins of the body. Stop eating sodium and limit it's consumption. Avoid nsaids, motrin, aleve, (naproxen) naprosyn. Call your doctor for an appointment. Elevating the legs higher than your heart will help. ...Read more
