Services

A diagnosis of heart or vascular conditions and diseases often begins with your primary care physician, who then refers you to a cardiologist. Equipped with state-of-the-art tools and technology, our cardiologists focus on the prevention, diagnosis and medical management of a multitude of heart conditions.

Non-Invasive Cardiology

Non-invasive cardiology focuses on the detection and treatment of heart disease using external tests to evaluate and diagnose cardiac disorders, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting or rapid and irregular heartbeats. These tests could include:

Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Signal Average EKG
- Holter Monitor (24 or 48 hours)
- Long-Term Ambulatory Telemetry (up to 30 days)

Pacemaker/Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator Testing

Stress Test
- Exercise Treadmill
- Nuclear

Segmental Pressures Study
- PVR
- Arterial

Echocardiogram
- Stress
- Transesophageal

Ultrasound Imaging
- Carotid
- Arterial
- Venous
- Abdominal Vascular

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (24-hour)
