what heart screening services are available?
At our office in Midtown New York City, our internist routinely screens patients with a high risk of developing heart disease or those who are experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain and heart palpitations.
Heart screening services at Integrative Medicine of NYC include:
EKGs are routinely utilized in our office and are completed in about 10 minutes. An electrocardiogram, or EKG, tests the electrical activity of your heart through small electrodes placed on the skin. EKG's at Integrative Medicine of NYC are fast, painless and accurate tests if heart problems are suspected.
A holter monitor is a battery operated mobile device that tracks your heart's activity for 24-48 hours, depending on your doctor's orders. The results are automatically sent over to the doctor who reviews your heart's activity and an activity log for the time you wore the monitor. A holter monitor may be ordered for you if your doctor suspects irregular heart activity that cannot be identified in an EKG.
