Board Certified Cardiologist vs. Non?

So the veterinary specialists near me (like 5 minutes away) have an internal medicine doc that does cardio work (they say that she "likes doing cardio"), but is not a board certified cardiologist. The only vet I can find that is a board certified (but for some reason isn't on ACVIM's site?) is across the bay and in San Leandro. Does anyone have any experience or advice? The one in San Leandro is more in demand and so I booked the first available appointment just in case (next week thursday).

I'd use a board certified cardiologist whenever possible-it DOES make a difference, IMO.

Thanks for the advice--I will stick with that appointment, then. Yikes... specialists are much more expensive than our local vet (who's visits are seemingly never under 200). $130 for walking into the office with 400 for an echo and 100 for the ekg. Holter is 267, but that's still cheaper than us buying our own. It's a good thing we got insurance this year... (that covers all hereditary and genetic diseases and has no per injury cap--just a yearly cap of 20k).

Luckily I have been able to do my own holters (I work for an interventional cardiologist) free of charge.
I am taking Rudi in to see his Cardiologist Dr. Kathy Wright here in Cincinnati tomorrow for a check up. His general vet thinks his mitral murmur is a little worse although he is asymptomatic. The usual costs for an exam, bp check and echo with her is approx $500.

Thank you, Carol. I'm hoping nothing is wrong and Niz was just really stressed after the butt pokies.
