Electrocardiogram Testing

An EKG/ECG is a simple, painless test that can be conveniently performed in our office that is used to evaluate the electrical activity of the heart. It is performed by attaching tiny electrodes to stickers placed on the patient’s arms, legs and chest. This may not be performed routinely but may be ordered to assess heart rate and rhythm, to assess the effect of medications, or for certain symptomatic complaints, such as palpitations, dizziness, fainting or chest pain.
