How much are cardiologist appointments??

My friend is having trouble with his heart and he is in such denial. He thinks all it is a heart murmur, but I ve talked to my pediatric Dr. about it and she told me that he should go to a cardiologist. I ve had heart problems and surgery so I know that things can get very serious if not treated soon. His family either doesn t seem to care or believe him much. They don t have health insurance(or so he tells me) and I need to know how much money I need to earn to take him to the doctor. Does anyone know?

I don't know how old you are, but I doubt you can afford it. We're talking hundreds after diagnostic tests are done. Just the visit could cost up to around 300 dollars. There are free clinics. At least get him to go for a screening and if the doc there thinks something is wrong, they can refer him and give him some referrals for financial assistance. Sounds like you are a good friend.

I am 28.5 weeks pregnant and my family just relocated for my husband to start grad school. I had my 20 week ultrasound, and then just did my glucose around 25 weeks prior to moving. So almost no official appointment for almost 2 months. Baby movement and weight gain are good, no bleeding, and no signs of problems. We are getting on Medi-Cal, but may take another week to finalize everything. And who knows how much longer til I can get into an office. Should I be worried about going so long between appointments? What else can I do?

My 14 yr. old is having extreme burping, we have been to the ER and got no results. She was previously diagnosed with a Lyles Heart murmur or musical murmur. She is 5 9 , 138 pounds, active with basketball and dance. She complains of lightheadedness, chest pain in upper left quadrant, left arm pain and she says she feels like her heart is racing at random times. She can t inhale or exhale deeply without burps, and they are constant and persistant. She has had a normal sonogram of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder. Do you have any suggestions? We are frustrated. In the ER she had low potassium and low BUN, she has also been diagnosed with chillblains on the fingers and toes, negative antigen test for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis.
