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

Fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, can I get a fellowship in gynecologic oncology afterward?

Fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, can I get a fellowship in gynecologic oncology afterward?

Theoretically yes...: In practice, few if any physicians can endure 11 years of training and resident pay. Additionally, most program directors would frown upon the switch in direction as a sign of personality imbalance and/or unpredictability and would be reluctant to hire you after the first fellowship without a very good reason. Given that both subspecialties are now quite competitive, i advise against trying this. ...Read more
