I am currently in an employment selection process and am required to have testing conducted to determine medical suitability for the position. I am seeking recommendations for (1) a Licensed Mental Health Professional (just for an evaluation), (2) a cardiologist, and (3) an optometrist/ophthalmologist that can test depth perception in seconds of arc (Randot Stereoacuity Test is recommended). I don't have a primary care physician or medical insurance, so any visits will be at my own expense (therefore cost is a factor).

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your input. I was thinking my best bet might be UNMH to see a cardiologist. I know they also have a Mental Health department also, so it might be worth checking out also. I'll check into your recommendations and weigh the options.

It would be great if they offered referrals, but in this case they just requested additional medical info (I've already done a Medical Exam).

I have been using a Cardiologist at UNMH for about seven years or so. What can I say? It's follow up exams, no problems, they finally got more parking, I have been happy with the service.

My wife and I have also been using Eye Associates of New Mexico, their Albuquerque locations for about seven years with good results, surgery and routine exams.

A friend recommended I look into UNMH - he thinks it might be less expensive than anywhere else. Have you found that to be the case? I've been given a deadline (about three and a half weeks) to have all this done, but I'm planning on requesting an extension. How has the scheduling been in your experience?

Is that the same as the Heart Hospital - you can see the building on the west side of the freeway from I25? I'll check into them as well. Thanks for your input.

My insurance pays those bills, I don't know if it is expensive or cheaper. You would have to call them to see about scheduling.

I was just wondering how far in advance you usually make an appoinment, or specifically how long it taked before you can be seen. I'm planning on calling them Monday anyway.

I usually make appointments 4 to 8 months in advance, while I am there seeing the Doctor, we make an appointment for the next visit. I have no idea how long it would take you to get an appointment, you call up and they look at the schedule.
