eConsults connect primary care providers with our cardiology specialists to quickly answer questions about questions related to blood pressure and cholesterol management, further testing or correlation with unexpected test results. 

Through this service, primary care providers communicate directly with the cardiologists in order to answer a specific patient-focused question. Upon request, the cardiology specialist reviews the patient’s health information and any relevant testing, such as echocardiograms and stress testing, to generate a formal opinion in answer to the provider’s question.

Requesting an eConsult

Primary care providers interested in requesting a consult may contact Marshall Cardiology at 304-691-8500. A nurse will arrange the consult with the patient. Results will be returned to the requesting provider within 72 hours. In some cases, however, the specialist may decide that an in-person appointment is necessary and will make that recommendation in the eConsult answer to the referring provider.

The cardiologists at Marshall Health participating in eConsults specialize in electrophysiology and heart failure, as well as general cardiology.
