Intervention

Intervention is the term used by the medical community to refer to treatment – we are literally intervening between a patient and their disease in order to halt or, ideally, reverse the disease’s progress. 

Diagnosis

North Shore Heart Clinic’s sophisticated cardiological facilities come into their own during the diagnostic phase. Patients are sometimes referred to the our cardiologists in Sydney solely to take advantage of the latest diagnostic technology that North Shore Heart Clinic has to offer, bypassing consultation altogether. In this case, North Shore Heart Clinic acts as a diagnostic laboratory outsourcing its resources to affiliated clinicians.

consulting

Our patients are referred to NSHC by their GPs in order to take advantage of the specialist knowledge our cardiac consultants can bring to bear on a suspected or existing heart condition. In consultation, our doctors will go over your medical history, family history, lifestyle, and any symptoms you might be experiencing. The purpose of a primary consultation is to establish a comprehensive background against which accurate diagnoses can be made. It is usually the case that several consultations are required as diagnostic information accumulates or your treatment progresses.
