There is no cost to the patient. The clinic has the capacity to review patients frequently for medication adjustments and blood pressure monitoring during the diagnostic process. Diagnostic tests such as the saline suppression test and adrenal vein sampling can be promptly arranged for patients being investigated for primary aldosteronism. The clinic actively engages the referring clinicians and patients in clinical research so as to better understand the prevalence, cause, diagnosis and treatment of primary aldosteronism.
