I received my ECHO results on my chart but have not been contacted by anyone to go over the results. Feel that is negligent on the doctors part.

Quite disappointed in a very few minutes (2-5 at most) spent in discussing actual ECHO results and what they (10% increase in ventricle size over previous ECHO & increase aorta diameter) mean.
