Additional Information

An important part of maintaining a healthy heart is early detection of any heart diseases that may exist. Ways to detect these problems are to perform invasive or noninvasive tests that serve to detect problems, determine the severity of a condition, and inform the proper course of treatment. We have a skilled staff that will help in improving the quality of your heart health.



Procedures & tests

Carotid Ultrasound

  Carotid ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries.   Carotid ultrasound tests for blocked or narrowed carotid arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke. 

Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram uses sound waves to produce images of your heart in order to determine if heart disease is present.  This common test allows your doctor to see your heart beating and pumping blood.

 An electrocardiogram, also known as ECG or EKG, records the electrical signals in your heart. It's a simple noninvasive test used to detect heart problems and monitor the heart's status. 

Exercise Stress Test

 A stress test, also called an exercise stress test, shows how well your heart works during physical activity. It  usually involves walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike while monitoring heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. This test  can reveal problems with blood flow within your heart. 

Nuclear Stress Test

 A nuclear stress test uses radioactive dye and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flow to your heart.   The test usually involves injecting radioactive dye, then taking two sets of images of your heart — one while you're at rest and another after exertion. 

Pacemaker Check

 A pacemaker checkup is a regular medical appointment required for all patients who have had a pacemaker (a device that regulates abnormal heart rhythms caused by heart diseases such as arrhythmia) implanted. ... This is done by connecting it to a computer using electrodes that are attached to the patient's body.
