Are you sure that your echocardiogram is being read by a cardiologist? WHAT??
Many times an echocardiogram is ordered because someone is short of breath or has chest pain. I don't know about you, but I want my echocardiogram (and my families' and friends' and clients' and co-workers' and neighbors' ) read by a physician, not a tech. And I want my hospital to have a system that requires doctors to review the results of important medical tests.
