Our Medical Team
Our medical team is comprised of some of North America’s most experienced and accomplished specialists in the field of cardiology. While our company is primarily based in Ontario, we work with world renowned cardiologists who are called upon to share their expertise through lectures and talks in both the United States and Canada. We maintain a comprehensive network of physicians who specialize in the various fields of cardiology, and are practiced in the study of electrocardiographic readings.
Our Cardiologists are exceptionally qualified to investigate irregularities in heart function, and work diligently to offer accurate diagnoses to all patients.
To provide patients with the highest quality healthcare service, our company’s physicians strive to remain up to date on critical developments in cardiological study, as well as the use of ambulatory devices. We use only the most secure and effective methods in order to detect heart disease in its early stages. We consider the well-being of the patient to be our primary interest, and it is our organization’s personal mission to ensure that patients are alerted to potential health complications as soon as possible.
Our patients can expect to receive the best treatment from our supportive team of experts. The medical specialists we work with are trained to perform thorough examinations of testing results from heart monitoring devices. We use our extensive knowledge of cardiology and the human cardiovascular system to locate and identify abnormalities in the heart. When we detect an area of concern, we immediately communicate our findings to patients and supply them with the information they need to take the next steps in finding the right treatment options.
At our company, we don’t put patients through a lengthy waiting period before sharing the results of diagnostics testing. We believe that being informed is the greatest weapon our patients have against heart disease. Our cardiologists understand that the prospect of coping with heart disease can be overwhelming and they endeavor to make patients comfortable throughout the monitoring process.They make a dedicated effort to show compassion and respect, and put patients and their families at ease.
