At the office of Cory A. Waldman, MD, we treat a variety of heart conditions, including arrhythmia.
These are changes in the body’s electrical impulses that affect the way the heart beats, causing the heart to no longer function as it should. Many patients with arrhythmia often don’t experience any symptoms, but it can be indicative of a serious underlying problem such as coronary artery disease or heart muscle deterioration. Arrhythmia can also occur as a result of a heart attack or recent cardiac surgery.
We recommend regular examinations to best ensure the health of your heart. Our team will work with you to ensure an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan.

Physical exams are also often needed when applying for jobs, for insurance policies, to participate in team sports, and when travelling outside of the country.

This test is most frequently performed on a treadmill using an EKG machine to monitor your heart performance when you are active.

One of your most vital vital-organs is your heart. Without it, the oxygen brought in by your lungs would not be carried to other organs, like your brain. Your body would have a challenging time fighting off infections and viruses because your blood is also responsible for delivering white blood cells where they are needed.
Since the cardiovascular system encompasses so much, problems and diseases that affect cardiovascular health can stem from several factors. Some conditions are genetic or congenital, meaning they’ve been present from birth, while other diseases are the result of lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, smoking, and birth control. Additional conditions emerge from injury, infection, or other diseases in the body such as diabetes, hypertension, high blood cholesterol, and many others.
We are proud to offer laboratory services with on-site testing using state-of-the-art technology so that you and your doctor can get your results as quickly as possible.
We can offer not only simple diagnostic tests but more complex ones, too. Once you’ve been diagnosed, we can start treatment so you can begin to feel better sooner. We can have certain test results in just a few minutes instead of having to wait to get the results from another laboratory.
The sooner we find out the results, the sooner we can begin treatment, and this can make a huge difference.
