WELCOME - NEW PATIENTS

Thank you for choosing Dr. Ludington and North Coast Cardiology for your heart health care. Our staff will do everything we can to make your visit educational and helpful.

For your first appointment, please arrive 20 minutes early. You will need to fill out a new patient form that details your medical history.

Be sure to bring with you to your appointment:

  • Your health insurance card. We cannot see you without it.
  • Photo identification
  • Your social security number (card not needed)
  • Your referring or primary care doctor's name, address and phone number.
  • Cash, check, VISA or MasterCard payment for your co-pay or deductible.
  • A COMPLETE LIST of your medications including doses. This is VERY IMPORTANT.
  • Your pharmacy's phone number and address.
  • If you have not had a cholesterol check in over a year, you may come in a FASTING state (no food for 12 hours) and we can check your cholesterol levels at your visit. (Or, you may come back at another time to do this blood test.)
  • Consider bringing a list of a few questions to ask the doctor.

We request that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you are unable to make your appointment. We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee for missed appointments. We respect your time -- we'd like to ask the same of you.

WHAT'S NEW?

A SIMPLE, 30 MINUTE TEST THAT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.
Our office is proud to offer a brand new program, called "PLAQUE DETECT." This painless, noninvasive 30 minute test uses state of the art ultrasound to diagnose blockages in the carotid arteries, which can lead to stroke. The abdominal aorta and the circulation to the legs is also thoroughly evaluated. Finally, the function of the heart is analyzed, something that no other screening program offers.

OUR OFFICE WINS 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, AND 2017 BEST OF ENCINITAS AWARD

The US Local Business Association awarded North Coast Cardiology the Best of Encinitas award again this year. This is our fourt year in a row! Congratulations to our team for earning this honor.
