Cardiology: Second Opinion Service

Helping you make informed healthcare decisions

second opinion heartA second opinion is a valuable resource for every heart patient. It’s an important way for you and your family to ask questions about your condition and explore your treatment options.

Because The University of Kansas Health System is an academic medical center, you will benefit from multidisciplinary collaboration among physicians who are experts in a variety of specialties. These doctors can offer you more of the information you need to make the best decisions about your healthcare.

Getting a second opinion does not mean you think the first diagnosis is wrong or that you doubt your doctor. Instead, it can offer you peace of mind by confirming your original diagnosis and providing more treatment options.

Quality care close to home

Cardiac second opinion appointments are available at The University of Kansas Health System and at our Mid-America Cardiology clinics conveniently located throughout the region.

Scheduling an appointment

Your primary care physician may schedule your second opinion appointment, or you may schedule it yourself by calling 913-588-1227 or toll free 844-323-1227. Our health resource staff will connect you with our cardiology office to schedule your appointment with a heart specialist appropriate for your condition.

Please have your medical records available at the time of appointment so that we can review your condition and make the best recommendation for your care. It may help to know that second opinions are covered by Medicare and most major insurance plans.
