One of the many outstanding services offered to the patients of Southwest Family Physicians in Middleburg Heights, Ohio are the tests performed in our Cardiology Department. Dr. Richard McBurney, a staff physician with a special interest in Cardiology, along with qualified staff, are ready to evaluate most abnormalities of the heart.
Depending on symptoms the patient may be experiencing, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, palpitations, or abnormal EKG findings, the department is equipped to offer a variety of tests including, an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart), a stress echo (a treadmill stress test using ultrasound images taken before and after stress), a routine treadmill stress test, and placement of either a holter monitor (24 hour EKG), or a 24-hour blood pressure monitor.
Your doctor will order the test best suited to evaluate your particular symptom.
Dr. McBurney, along with a cardiology group who works closely with Southwest Family Physicians, Inc. will interpret the findings of these tests and make recommendations, or process referrals for the patients as needed.
