Additional Cardiac Services
Prepare for your visit by filling out these forms ahead of your appointment and bring them with you. This will help us provide you with an efficient visit. Thank you!
We ask that you please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Please bring the following items with you to your visit:
Your current health insurance information
Your current Photo ID
Any medications you are currently taking in their original containers or in a list with dosages and times
Please note: In order to provide efficient care for all of our patients, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment if you do not arrive at least 30 minutes early.
For your first office visit, please bring a recent EKG and the actual films of a chest X-ray. If these aren’t available, we will do an EKG and chest X-ray in the office. A new patient visit requires approximately 30 minutes of examination time.
Subsequent visits usually take 15 minutes of examination time.
It’s very important that you request your prescription refills during normal business hours before 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Prescriptions will not be refilled on weekends or holidays.
You can request a refill on the MyCovenantHealth Patient Portal or by calling your pharmacy.
Insurers often require a physician referral prior to your visit to Parkway Cardiology Associates. As a courtesy to our patients, we will attempt to contact your primary care physician and request a referral. However, it is your responsibility to confirm that a referral has been obtained before you are seen by our providers.
If a test or procedure is ordered by a Parkway Cardiology Associates provider, our staff will obtain a necessary precertification on your behalf. Precertification for any tests or procedures ordered by your own primary care physician is the responsibility of your primary care provider’s office.
Our Patients Are Important
We want to be your first and best choice for healthcare, and we need your feedback.
You will receive a text message or email asking you to complete a confidential and secure survey about your visit. Your feedback will help us continue to deliver excellent care. Thank you!
