Cardiology is the medical specialty dedicated to care of the heart and blood vessels. Through our partnership with Mount Sinai Heart at St. Luke’s, cardiologists at Ryan Health provide comprehensive heart health assessments to evaluate and reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. Our doctors can diagnose the causes of heart related chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, and fainting. They also treat heart conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart failure, and arrhythmias.
In collaboration with Mount Sinai Heart at St. Luke’s, our patients have access to a full spectrum of cardiac diagnostic and therapeutic procedures including:
- Holter monitoring
- Stress testing
- Cardiac catheterization
- Coronary angioplasty and stenting
- Electrophysiology studies
- Catheter ablation
- Open heart surgery
Ask your primary care doctor if a consultation with a cardiologist is appropriate for you. Even if you are feeling well, sometimes a visit to a cardiologist can be helpful to check on your heart health and identify ways to promote it.
At the time of your visit to the cardiologist, we will measure your blood pressure and may ask you to have an EKG or blood work. Other types of tests such as echocardiograms and stress tests will be scheduled for a later date.
Yes. By having an accurate list of your current medicines and dosages, your cardiologist will be much better prepared to offer recommendations to optimize your care.
