At St. Luke’s Heart and Vascular Institute, we pour our hearts into caring for yours. Your heart diagnosis deserves a second look. And you deserve a second chance.
At St. Luke's Heart and Vascular Institute, our second opinion program is intended to give you peace of mind, especially when you or a loved one is facing a serious heart condition or you're not satisfied with the answers you're hearing from your caregivers. A second opinion from St. Luke's Hospital heart and vascular specialists may help prevent unnecessary procedures, or provide you with an alternate option for consideration when it comes to your diagnosis.
With our alliance with the Cleveland Clinic Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Institute, the #1 heart program according to U.S. News & World Report, our commitment to you goes even farther.
St. Luke's Heart & Vascular Institute and the Cleveland Clinic Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Institute:
We do this while keeping our patient's personal needs and treatment options at the forefront of our care. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with a heart condition that deserves a second look or you need a cardiologist, our team of nationally-recognized heart specialists can help.
Please call our second opinion phone line at 314-205-6801 to schedule your appointment.
