How often should you see your doctor if you have heart failure?

ANSWER

Keep all your appointments with your care team. It'll increase your chances of staying on track with your treatment plan. If you have questions about your condition, write them down and take them with you to your appointments. If you have urgent questions, call the doctor.

If you see any other doctor, let him know about your heart failure medications and your diet or fluid restrictions.
