King’s Daughters Cardiology offering same-day visits

Staff report

ASHLAND — King’s Daughters is pleased to announce the availability of same-day cardiology appointments at its cardiology offices in Ashland, Russell/Bellefonte, Prestonsburg, Ky., and Portsmouth, Ohio. Same-day visits are available Monday through Friday.

Same-Day care is designed for those who are having minor signs and symptoms of heart disease, such as shortness of breath, unexplained tiredness, flutter, or a general feeling that something’s wrong. Patients who have experienced more serious symptoms in the past but did not seek care may also benefit from a Same-Day Cardiology visit.

Others who can benefit from same-day appointments include:

• Those with a family history of heart disease who want to begin seeing a cardiologist as a preventive measure;

• Patients whose primary care provider has recommended they see a heart specialist and want to get started right away;

• People who have moved into the area and need to establish with a heart specialist for continuity of care; and

• Individuals who formerly saw a cardiologist but haven’t done so in a while.
