What to expect from your doctor

What to expect from your doctor

A doctor or cardiologist who sees you for heart-related signs and symptoms may ask:

  • What are your symptoms?
  • When did you begin experiencing symptoms?
  • Have your symptoms gotten worse over time?
  • Do you have chest pain or difficulty breathing?
  • Does exercise or physical exertion make your symptoms worse?
  • Are you aware of heart problems in your family?
  • Have you been diagnosed with other health conditions?
  • What medications are you taking?
  • Have you ever been treated with radiation therapy?
  • How much do you exercise in a typical week?
  • What's your typical daily diet?
  • Do you or did you smoke? How much? If you quit, when?
  • Do you drink alcohol? How much?

What you can do in the meantime

It's never too early to make healthy lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating healthy foods and becoming more physically active. These are primary lines of defense against coronary artery disease and its complications, including heart attack and stroke.
