Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need.
Doctors trained in cardiovascular diseases, cardiovascular surgery and medical genetics diagnose and treat people who have spontaneous coronary artery dissection at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Staff in the Women's Heart Clinic also may treat people who have spontaneous coronary artery dissection.
For appointments or more information, call Cardiovascular Diseases at 507-284-3994 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central time, Monday through Friday or complete an online appointment request form. No physician referral is necessary. Cardiologists generally can see most patients within two weeks after their appointment requests, and often cardiologists can see patients within a week or less after the appointment request. Patients with urgent issues can usually be seen within 24 hours after their requests. In emergencies, people are directly transferred to inpatient hospital care.
