Heart disease can be diagnosed first by bringing to the attention of your primary care physician any physicians you may have. Then, typically, your primary care physician will refer you to an evaluation and consultation with a cardiologist. Beyond that, the appropriate testing can be ordered to evaluate the patient based on their symptoms. These may include testing such as EKG, echocardiogram, heart rhythm monitoring, and stress testing. The abnormalities in these tests may lead to more elaborate testing such as a cardiac catheterization, or electrophysiology testing.
