Working Schedule

An appointment with a cardiologist during which you can discuss your heart health, as well as any factors that may influence your cardiovascular health …

A cardiology consultation is usually requested by your family doctor or sometimes another specialist or surgeon when he or she wishes to have a cardiac specialist (Cardiologist) use his or her expertise to evaluate you. This might be one of many reasons from concern over a known or possible serious cardiac problem to a more general evaluation. It might also include situations where you, your personal physician or your regular cardiologist wish you to have a confirmatory or second opinion. Our Medical Team start by speaking to you and examining you, reviewing any pertinent records available and possibly doing further diagnostic testing.

Services We Provide

Among the other special services for adults and children are :
ECG

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity of your heart at rest. It provides information about your heart rate and rhythm, and shows if there is enlargement of the heart due to high blood pressure (hypertension) or evidence of a previous heart attack (myocardial infarction). However, it does not show whether you have asymptomatic blockages in your heart arteries or predict your risk of a future heart attack. The resting ECG is different from a stress or exercise ECG or cardiac imaging test. You may need an ECG test if you have risk factors for heart disease such as high blood pressure, or symptoms such as palpitations or chest pain
