What Do Cardiologists Treat?

Cardiologists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of heart attacks, heart failure, heart disease, and heart rhythm disturbances.

Tests Cardiologists Perform

Our NYC cardiologist may perform diagnostic tests including:

Echocardiogram (Echo):

Also called echocardiography or diagnostic cardiac ultrasound, an Echocardiogram (echo) uses high frequency sound waves to make pictures of the heart in order to evaluate the structure and function of the organ

Ambulatory electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG):

A test that’s performed while you are walking around and carrying out your normal daily activities; it helps to detect abnormal heart rates and rhythms

Stress testing:

Also known as an exercise stress test, stress testing evaluates how much stress your heart can manage before developing either an abnormal rhythm or evidence of ischemia (not enough blood flow to the heart muscle)

Cardiac catheterization:

A test that checks how the heart is working and checks for abnormalities in order to diagnose and treat cardiovascular conditions

Holter monitoring:

A test that’s used to detect heart rhythm irregularities that aren’t found during a regular ECG exam

Ankle-brachial index test:

A test that’s done by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and the arm, typically while a person is at rest, in order to predict the severity of peripheral arterial disease (PAD); in some cases, the test will also be performed during an exercise stress test

Treatments For Cardiovascular Diseases

Treatment for cardiovascular disease will depend upon each patient’s unique needs. Treatment options may include:

Lifestyle changes:

Changing your diet and exercise and other lifestyle factors can significantly help. This may include eating a low-fat and low-sodium diet, performing at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days of the week, quitting smoking, and decreasing alcohol intake.


There are a variety of prescription medications that can improve symptoms. The type of medication will depend on the type of heart disease.

Medical procedures or surgery: 

If necessary, surgery may be an effective treatment option. The type of surgical procedure recommended will depend upon the type of heart disease and the extent of the damage to your heart.
