Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in the United States both for men and women. In spite of our therapeutic advances, 1.2 million Americans suffer from an Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) every year and 500,000 die as a result.
Studies indicate that identifying and detecting heart disease early and reversing risk factors that lead to heart disease prevents bad outcomes such as heart attacks and strokes.

The team of physicians and staff in the stress lab will be with you from start to finish during your stay, and we offer results immediately upon completion, often in less than 2 hours. In addition to providing your physicians with copies of your report, we will gladly provide copies to the patient as well upon request.
