Cardiology, P.C. offers in-house testing related to cardiac specialty needs. Onsite testing offers greater convenience to you as well as an added assurance of quality and appropriate follow-up.
To aid in making an accurate diagnosis, your doctor may order a test or series of tests. We will provide verbal or written instructions for you to follow. Some of these tests may include:
- Nuclear Cardiac Stress Test
- Monitoring (Holter/Event)
- Cardiac Catherization
- Pacemaker ICD/Checks
- Carotid/4 Vessel
- Treatment of Peripheral Vascular Disease
- Renal Denervation
Cardiology, P.C. utilizes state-of-the-art non-invasive ultrasound imaging techniques to provide its physicians with quick and accurate in-house assessments of patients’ heart function and vascular health. We utilize technology provided by Philips, G.E. Medical and Parks Medical to make these assessments. These tests include:
- Renal Artery Ultrasound
- Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
- Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound
- Carotid Artery Ultrasound
Cardiology, P.C. provides care and long-term monitoring of patients with pacemakers and defibrillators. This allows the physicians at Cardiology, P.C. to stay abreast of their patients’ conditions and devices and be proactive in ensuring that these devices continue to provide long-term reliability for patients. Cardiology, P.C. provides resources for patients to have their devices checked in the office or remotely from home.
Cardiology, P.C. provides in-house laboratory testing for patients taking Coumadin/Warfarin. This ensures that patients always receive the appropriate level of medication preventing problems that may come from over- or under-medicating. Cardiology, P.C. provides resources for patients to have levels checked in the office or remotely from home.
Cardiology, P.C.’s research division is currently working with cardiovascular industry leaders in evaluating investigational cutting-edge technology and therapy in the following areas:
- Heart Failure (weak heart muscle)
- Ischemic Heart Disease (poor circulation to the heart muscle)
- Coronary Stenting
- Chronic Angina (chest pain or extreme shortness of breath due to poor circulation to the heart muscle)
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation to the legs)
These research opportunities include stem cell and other regenerative medicinal research protocols designed to improve cardiac and vascular function in patients who have severe limitations despite receiving conventional therapy.
If you have any of these clinical conditions, you may qualify for one of our ongoing research studies. There is no cost to you for study related procedures. Discuss your interest with your physician and feel free to stop by the Research Department for more information.
