The Gundersen Valve Clinic brings together several heart and imaging specialists to evaluate, treat and manage adult patients with heart valve problems.
Ask your primary care provider for a referral to Gundersen’s Valve Clinic if you’ve had:
- Heart murmur
- Abnormal echo
- Other symptoms of a heart valve problem
A Valve Clinic coordinator reviews your medical records prior to your visit, and schedules appointments and consultations with the necessary specialists—generally all in a single visit.
After a thorough evaluation, the findings are reviewed by the Valve Clinic team. A report outlining the findings and treatment recommendations will be shared with you and your primary care provider. Then we’ll work with you to provide the appropriate level of care. This may include:
- Providing only the initial consultation with follow-up care provided by your regular doctor
- Ongoing management of your valve problem
- Involving our heart failure team or cardiac surgery team
