Arranging for a Test
Inpatients: If you are a patient in the hospital, physicians may request that your cardiology test be done before you are discharged home. Arrangements for testing will be made between the nursing staff and the Cardiology staff.
Outpatients: If your test is to be performed on an outpatient basis the physician's office staff will set up an appointment date and time for you to come in to have the test performed. All Cardiology tests require a written physician's order prior to the test.
Outpatient scheduling is done through CVMC Registration at 802-371-4283.
