Cardiology Wellness Exam

Listen to your heart’s health

This test helps us look for any signs of heart disease and assess your risk of developing heart disease in the future as part of the checkup. You may need a cardiac wellness exam if you suffer from:


  • Obesity and high blood sugar levels

  • Elevated blood pressure

  • High blood cholesterol levels

  • Certain health-damaging habits, such as smoking and drinking alcohol 


What happens during a Cardio Wellness Exam?

During a Cardio Wellness Exam, one of our doctors will ask you about your symptoms and offer you screening tests to evaluate your cardiovascular health and risk factors. 


The doctor might advise you to begin heart disease screenings at a younger age if you are at high risk for the disease or have a strong family history.
