Cardiac Testing

About Cardiac Testing

Cardiac testing enables the best heart doctors in Jackson Heights to identify any cardiac abnormalities especially short-term complications such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) or sudden cardiac death. It is particularly useful for patients that experience chest pain, severe breathlessness, palpitations, spells of dizziness and fainting or blackouts.

The results of these tests together with your medical history are used to predict the risk of cardiac disease. These tests are a combination of non-invasive and invasive tests. If your heart doctor in Jackson Heights feels that you need to undergo cardiac testing during your consultation, you may need to return to the clinic or a different testing center in order to complete the tests. We can perform non-invasive tests usually during the initial consultation, but invasive tests usually require a further appointment.

It is important to bring with you a list of any recent tests that you may have undergone, together with the results, especially those pertaining to the heart, when you come in for your initial consultation. Furthermore, ensure that you inform your Jackson Heights cardiologist of any prescription and non-prescription medications that you are taking. Based upon your test results, we will prepare a personalized plan to manage your risk factors and treat any diagnosed conditions.

It is imperative that you understand the management plan thoroughly when you are guided through it. Make sure that you interact with your Jackson Heightscardiologist, expressing any concerns and asking any questions you may have, to ensure that you are able to obtain the maximal benefit from it.
