What services does cardiac urgent care provide?

At Upper East Side Cardiology, the team offers various cardiac urgent care services, including:

Diagnostic imaging

Diagnostic imaging procedures, like echocardiograms and electrocardiograms, provide a quick and convenient way to gather information about your heart’s health. 

The team at Upper East Side Cardiology uses diagnostic imaging to identify various medical issues, including arrhythmias, blocked or narrowed arteries, and heart attacks.

Lab tests

If diagnostic imaging doesn’t provide enough information to make a diagnosis, your Upper East Side Cardiology provider might order lab work, like a Troponin T-test. 

A Troponin T-test assesses the level of Troponin T in your body –– a protein produced by the heart muscle. High levels of Troponin T indicate a past heart attack.

Referrals to the ER

If the team at Upper East Side Cardiology determines you’re having a medical emergency, they refer you to a nearby hospital. If necessary. They can even have an ambulance transport you to the facility.
