Coumadin Clinic

Coumadin Clinic

Patients taking Coumadin (or warfarin), a potent blood thinner, can have their blood levels analyzed by a simple finger stick to best manage the dose of this medication. Results are available in just a few minutes while you wait in our office.

Echocardiogram

Echocardiogram

Echocardiography is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart muscle. Ultrasound waves that rebound (or echo) off the heart can show the size, shape and movement of the heart’s valves and chambers, as well as the flow of blood through the heart. Echocardiography may show such abnormalities as poorly functioning heart valves or damage to the heart tissue from a past heart attack.

Exercise Stress Test

Exercise Stress Test

A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps the doctor find out how well your heart handles work. As your body pumps harder during the test, it requires more oxygen, so the heart must pump more blood. This test can show if the blood supply to the heart is reduced by a blockage in the arteries that flow to the heart muscle.

Holter Monitor

Holter Monitor

You will be asked to wear a special monitor for 24 hours in order to determine if there are any signs of an arrhythmia or irregular heartbeats. The doctor may order this test if you complain of palpitations, have a history of syncope (or passing out), or certain abnormalities on your electrocardiogram (EKG).

MUGA

MUGA

This test provides the “Gold Standard” in assessment of cardiac muscle strength and function. It is often used to monitor heart function in patients receiving chemotherapy.

Nuclear Stress Test

Nuclear Stress Test

A Nuclear Stress Test measures the blood flow to the heart in two stages: at rest and during exercise (stress). During the test, you will be given a small amount of radioactive tracer in order for a special camera to take pictures of your heart. Pictures are usually taken 30 minutes after the tracer is injected. The radioactive tracer will be cleared from your body naturally and relatively quickly. The amount of radiation you will be exposed to is comparable to that of X-rays.

Pacemaker Clinic

Pacemaker Clinic

Patients with Pacemakers or Defibrillators will be followed to ensure that their devices are functioning properly. These services are provided for your comfort and convenience in our office.

T Wave Alternans

T Wave Alternans

This cutting-edge technology allows the Cardiologist to assess your risk for Sudden Death by analyzing the micro-volt variations in electrical conduction from heartbeat to heartbeat. By recognizing patients who are at elevated risk, they can be appropriately treated by this early detection.

Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular Ultrasound

Using ultrasound technology the blood vessels of the body can be assessed for blockages which can be risks for strokes, aneurysms, or other circulatory problems. The carotid arteries in the neck, the abdominal aorta, and the arteries and veins in the legs can all be tested.
