I went to Dr. Reisman for a second opinion, after feeling unsatisfied with the previous physician's opinion. Dr. Reisman took the time to gather information and actually ran various tests besides the protocol one. He eased my mind and took the time to address not only my concerns, but offered helpful advice for a path to a healthier lifestyle.

Evelyn C. Patient

Great service! They got me in within an hour of calling them to let them know I had been having some issues. The staff were really kind and did their best to get all of the tests done in an efficient and thorough manner. Very impressive service. Will recommend to my family and friends who may need to see a cardiologist.

Tom B. Patient

I had a great experience with Dr. Reisman. He was able to schedule me for an appointment within 24 hours and took my concerns quite seriously. He even has night hours. His co-worker who performs the stress test and sonogram was really professional and kind and his receptionist is warm and welcoming even at the end of the day.

The symptoms you experience will be evaluated by Dr. Reisman with an emphasis on a personalized approach. If needed, appropriate non-invasive cardiac testing will occur in an expedited manner.

  • Chest pain

    If you are experiencing chest pain as either pressure, burning, indigestion, jaw pain or left arm discomfort an evaluation to exclude heart disease is warranted.  If symptoms occur with a sudden onset consider calling emergency services to exclude the possibility of a heart attack. The evaluation of chest pain will usually include a consultation along with an electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, and a stress test. For certain individuals, a calcium scan may also be scheduled. These tests will provide a comprehensive non-invasive evaluation of the heart. Read More

  • Shortness of breath

    Shortness of breath whether at rest or on exertion can frequently be caused by either a heart or a lung condition.  A consultation and screening with a cardiologist will exclude causes such as an enlarged heart, Cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, a prior heart attack, or congestive heart failure. If shortness of breath occurs with a sudden onset, especially if associated with chest discomfort, one should probably call emergency medical services.Read More

  • Palpitations

    Heart palpitations are described by patients as racing of the heart, heart pounding, or any irregular rhythm.  Although frequently harmless, palpitations can indicate an underlying heart condition. They are particularly worrisome if one has an underlying heart condition or experiences dizziness or fainting in association with palpitations.Read More

  • Low blood pressure

    Low blood pressure is frequently asymptomatic but at times can be associated with lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting.  An initial consultation would include an accurate measurement of blood pressure to determine whether low blood pressure is present.The cardiologist will also evaluate possible associated symptoms such as lightheadedness or fainting.

Cardiac Screenings

New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center has built a reputation as a cardiac center of excellence in heart screening for assessing and diagnosing patients with all forms of cardiac ailments. Among the best in their fields, our physicians offer an unrivaled service allied with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.

About Cardiac Screenings

Heart / Cardiac Testing

Dr. Steven Reisman offers thorough and comprehensive heart screenings, efficient cardiac testing, and care. Cardiac heart testing includes medical tests to find potential heart disease before the onset of symptoms. Cardiac testing is often used to identify patients suspected of having heart disease, specifically coronary artery disease (CAD).

About Heart / Cardiac Testing

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure, also called HBP or hypertension, is the silent killer because it often has no signs or symptoms. High pressure, or hypertension, is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Thorough and comprehensive high blood pressure tests are fast, painless, and can save your life.

About High Blood Pressure

Sports Cardiology / Athletic Heart

The physicians at our center offer Sports Cardiology (athletic heart screenings). Cardiac assessment of the athlete includes history and examination to assess both medical and sport-related heart problems. We use a stress test, an Electrocardiogram (ECG), and, where appropriate, further testing, including Echocardiography either at rest or with exercise, cardiac MRI, and testing for significant cardiac rhythm disturbances.

About Sports Cardiology / Athletic Heart


A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is stopped, causing brain cells to die. There are two kinds of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood clot or plaque buildup blocks a blood vessel in the brain. Hemorrhagic strokes result from blood vessels breaking and leaking into or around the brain.

About Stroke

Sudden Cardiac Death

Sudden cardiac death, which can have multiple causes, accounts for the largest cause of natural death - approximately 350,000 deaths per year in the United States - topping deaths from lung cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS.

About Sudden Cardiac Death

Coronary Calcium Scan/Cardiac

The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center can determine if you require a Coronary CT Calcium Scan Test - which we offer at our partner facility. A coronary calcium scan is a cardiac test that looks for specks of calcium in (and on) the walls of the coronary (heart) arteries. Calcifications in the coronary arteries are an early sign of coronary heart disease (CHD). Coronary heart disease is a cardiovascular disease in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up in the coronary arteries. In some cases, Cardiac CT is used to assess heart chambers, heart valves, and the surrounding blood vessels. Visit Dr. Steven Reisman, who can use a Coronary Calcium Scan Test to measure the calcification in the coronary arteries and identify the risk for heart disease.

About Coronary Calcium Scan/ Cardiac


An echocardiogram test is a type of ultrasound test used to look at how the heart is functioning. It's a painless and non-invasive procedure that lets physicians see the anatomy, structure, and function of all four chambers and valves of the heart and is performed by a trained sonographer. An echocardiogram takes "moving pictures" of the heart with sound waves. The ultrasound and electrocardiography (ECG) signals are recorded digitally to be reviewed by the cardiologist.

About Echocardiography


An Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a simple, painless, noninvasive test. An ECG records the rhythm and electrical activity of the heart. Dr. Steven Reisman may recommend an ECG for patients at risk of heart disease because there is a family history of heart disease or smoking, overweight, or have diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.

About Electrocardiography

Stress test

Stress tests are tests supervised by a doctor to evaluate the cardiovascular system during exercise and increased demand. Cardiac stress tests measure exercise capacity and identify abnormal responses to exercise. Several stress tests are performed in our facility depending on the individual’s age, history, symptoms, and risk factors.

About Stress test

“Holter” ECG Monitoring

Ambulatory "Holter" Electrocardiographic Monitoring. A Holter monitor is a small wearable ECG recording device. This remarkable cardiac test is used to monitor your heart rhythm over 24 hours. During your cardiac testing period, any abnormal heartbeats/rhythms are detected. The Holter monitor is about the size of a mobile phone, and you need to wear it around your waist. You can continue with your normal daily activities while you are wearing the device during your testing period.

About “Holter” ECG Monitoring

Vascular Ultrasound

Carotid Vascular Ultrasound testing (sometimes referred to as a "duplex study") of the carotid arteries is a simple, safe, and painless in-office test that produces pictures of blood circulation using sound waves.
