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 (SCAD) at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
