From first appointments to follow-up care and specialized treatment, your heart and vascular health are always our top priority. 

Continue reading to learn what you can expect during your visit to CardioVascular Health Clinic.

What to Expect at Your First Visit

Every cardiovascular appointment has different goals based on your unique health and wellness history and goals. 

Your first appointment will likely be a time to get to know your attending physician and better understand your specific cardiovascular diagnosis. 

During the appointment, you will likely:

  • Discuss your medical history and current symptoms
  • Complete a physical examination that may include checking your weight and testing for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other risk factors for heart disease or other cardiovascular-related conditions.
  • Learn about and complete diagnostic testing, including blood tests, an X-ray, stress test, or electrocardiogram. 
  • Discuss recommended treatment and begin your personalized treatment plan

Patient Forms

If you are a new patient, please arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointment time to get your information registered into our system. 

If you are a follow-up patient, please arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment. 

Either way, we ask that you please bring the following items to your appointment:

  • Completed new patient forms
  • Current driver’s license
  • Current health insurance card(s)
  • All your current medications (in the original containers), including herbs and dietary supplements
  • Your primary care physician and referring physician's name and phone number
  • Current medical records, including any recent diagnostic testing

Medication Refill Requests

If you need a refill of your cardiovascular medications, it is best to call your pharmacy directly, as they will send a refill request to our office for prompt review and filling. 

Although you can call our office with a refill request, filling your medication may take longer. 

If calling us directly, please leave a message on the nursing line with the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Date of birth
  • Medication name, dosage, and how you are currently taking it
  • The name, location, and phone number of your pharmacy.

Please note: Routine medications will be refilled in 24-48 hours. Prescriptions will not be refilled after hours, on weekends, or holidays. Please plan so that you do not run out of your medications.

Cardiovascular Emergencies

In case of non-life-threatening emergencies, please contact the office 24 hours a day. Our answering service will connect you with the physician on call. 

For any life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.

Questions?

We are here to support you through it all.

Call one of our offices between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday if you have a question.

Our nurses and staff are trained to answer questions and pass information between you and your physician. We will make every attempt to return calls by the end of the same business day.

Testimonials

Professional staff working in a beautiful facility with great doctors who sincerely care about their patients. Without Dr. Schmidt's skill, I would have needed heart bypass surgery instead of a stent. Follow-up has been thorough. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Dr. Jim Melton and all the staff are fantastic. He is an excellent surgeon and his team is GREAT!!!! I just had surgery at the surgery center, I have only great things to say about my experience. Without him I really don't think I would be here to write this. If you’re looking for a good cardiovascular team, they are a 5 star for sure.

Dr. Parsons and staff are amazing. He truly listened to me from the consult. Staff showed genuine care for my progress post procedure. I had my follow up appointment today so satisfied with results. Blake made me comfortable from the start. He is an activist for uterine fibroids treatment beyond the standard.

Dr. John Schrader is the most personable doctor we know. He stays on top of my dads health care and is genuinely concerned about his health. We never leave his office with questions. He answers them all. Even questions we don’t think of. Always professional but never cold or bad bedside manner. In our opinion he is THE BEST around.
Thank you Dr Schrader.

I came to Dr. Warren by a self referral for mals when it took me 8yrs 50+ doctors and thousands of dollars spent on no answers. My first visit I was scared I was just going to be gaslighted just like the past however I was pleasantly shocked when Dr. Warren immediately believed me. She took the time to review many disk I had brought from past tests. She never once dismissed me and listened to ever word I had to say. She scheduled one last test to confirm the diagnosis then I was scheduled for surgery right away. Surgery was a success and I can’t thank her and her staff enough. Dr. Warren truly saved my life.
