At Virginia Heart, we value our strong relationships with the greater community of physicians and referring providers. We take care to reinforce your role as the patient's primary care physician and our role as a cardiac consult.
Refer a Patient
You can refer a patient to Virginia Her by either:
Downloading our referral form, filling it out and faxing it to our dedicated scheduling fax number at (703) 591-1849
Calling one of our local offices and selecting option 1 to speak with a Patient Services Specialist at the front desk of that office. Our office hours are Monday- Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Many insurance companies now require the ordering physician to obtain pre-authorization for non-emergency cardiology services such as echocardiography, nuclear imaging, or cardiac catherization.
Our Pre-Authorization Assistance Center is available to work on your behalf to obtain required pre-authorizations from the insurance companies. Contact our Pre-Authorization center at (703) 621-4505 for more information or to enroll in this service for referring physicians.
Electronic Medical Records
Our ability to share information with you is greatly increased by our investment in an advanced health record (EHR) system, which enables us to easily transfer patient data to you and to other physicians within our practice for collaboration. In the case of an emergency, a patient's record can be obtained by our designated physicians who are always available at area hospitals.
Because of the critical nature of heart care, we make every effort to see your patient as soon as possible. Patients with urgent issues are given priority.
Patients can use our convenient main appointment line, (703) 621-4501, to arrange an office visit, test or procedure at a convenient time and location. If the patient has had previous office visits, we can electronically identify the patient's initial cardiologist, the office location, and procedures performed, thereby avoiding duplication or delay.
In order to expedite first-time office visits, patients can fill out new patient forms through the website.
Timely Test Results
We are often able to obtain test results from our labs or affiliated hospitals within 24 hours of a patient's visit, allowing us to communicate quickly with you and patients.
