New to this forum. Diagnosed from two different type tests an echo and then three months(july 2012) later a CT Scan; measurements went from 4.9 to 4.7 (CT SCAN). My cardiologist is not a specialist in this area, she provides textbook type answers and going forward I need more definitive support, if that truly exists. I am not familiar in working with physicians, at times they appear to want to keep the sauce secret.

What is the best method of identifying and engaging with a qualified surgeon specialist?? Appreciate any advice. I live in NYC metropolitan area.
