My primary care physician’s office phoned today, to discuss the results of my recent echocardiogram. My test results show that some of my heart valves are thickened. Of course, this is way too general of a summary to satisfy my intensely curious mind.
I want to know which specific heart valves are thickened, and to what specific degree. I asked to receive a copy of my results. Thankfully, my primary care physician doesn’t believe that my results warrant a referral to a cardiologist.
