Cardiology

Cardiology is a branch of our internal medicine department that specializes in the treatment of the heart and blood vessels. Our cardiologists are skilled at diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system, and are able to perform procedures to alleviate blockage. Though they treat some patients who have had heart problems, the cardiologists can also give advice about preventing heart disease.

Some of the diseases we treat

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Atrial fibrillation (A-Fib)
  • Arrhythmias
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Congestive heart disease
  • High blood cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Hypertension
  • Pericarditis
  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • High blood pressure or hypertension

Testing

Our testing department is staffed with technicians who are highly trained and will ensure your well-being. We use the latest, non-invasive cardiac testing procedures:

EKG (electrocardiogram, sometimes also called ECG) – This is a quick, safe and painless test using small electrode stickers placed on the chest, arms and legs. They detect when the body sends an electrical signal to begin a new heartbeat. The information is recorded for the doctor to measure the strength and timing of electrical signals as they pass through the heart.

Stress Test/Treadmill Test – This test will show how the heart rhythm changes when it’s resting and exercising.

Holter Monitor – This is a 24-hour EKG test. You will wear a small, portable device to record heart rhythm during your daily activities. The doctor will also ask you to keep an hour-by-hour diary so they know what you were doing.

Echocardiogram (Also called an “echo”) – This is basically an ultrasound of the heart to show the structure of the heart chambers and surrounding area.

Cardiolite Test – This test determines if your coronary arteries are supplying your heart with enough blood. It involves using an IV to inject a drop of radioactive tracer into a vein in your arm. Our nuclear medicine camera can detect when your blood carries the tracer to your heart muscle and arteries.

If you’d like more information, we have pamphlets in the department that explain each procedure in detail.

What is Chronic Heart Failure (CHF)?

We’re not sure who named it but ‘failure’ isn’t an accurate description. At Riverside Medical Clinic, we have a CHF Clinic specially designed to assist you. Read more here.
