After feeling unsatisfied with the previous physician's opinion, I went to Dr. Reisman for a second opinion. Dr. Reisman took the time to gather information and actually ran various tests besides 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.

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 kind and did their best to get all tests done efficiently and thoroughly. Very impressive service. I will recommend it to my family and friends.

While searching for heart doctors near me, I was hoping to find a practice where I’ll be valued as a person. 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 performed the stress test and sonogram was really professional and kind, and his receptionist was warm and welcoming even at the end of the day.

Dr. Reisman is fantastic, thorough and gets it. He is a clear communicator and makes sure the patient understands exactly what is going on. I was able to get a next day appointment, then have a series of tests scheduled and completed within a few days. The office staff is great too.

Symptoms

New York cardiology centers provide evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of heart-related symptoms, such as:

  • 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.

World Class Cardiology Centers

We change patients' perceptions of cardiac diagnosis and treatment. With multiple locations throughout New York City, our heart centers provide world-class cardiac care of a standard recognized to be amongst the best in the world.

Cardiac Screenings

Dr. Reisman’s practice has built an excellent reputation providing heart screening for patients suffering from all types of cardiac disorders. Our doctors are among the best in their fields, offer exceptional service and use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.

Heart Screenings

Heart / Cardiac Testing

Dr. Steven Reisman offers comprehensive heart screenings, as well as fast cardiac testing and care. Cardiac heart testing includes medical tests to detect potential heart disease before symptoms occur. Cardiac testing is widely used to identify patients with heart disease, specifically coronary artery disease (CAD).

Heart Tests

High Blood Pressure

Comprehensive high blood pressure tests are a quick and painless way to detect high blood pressure, commonly known as HBP or hypertension, which is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

High Blood Pressure

Sports Cardiology / Athletic Heart

Athlete cardiac assessment includes history and examination to assess both medical and sport-related heart problems. We perform a stress test, an electrocardiogram (ECG), and, if necessary, further testing such as echocardiography at rest or with exercise, cardiac MRI, and testing for severe cardiac rhythm disorders.

About Sports Cardiology / Athletic Heart

Stroke

A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, resulting in the death of brain cells. Strokes are classified into two types: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood clot or plaque buildup in the brain blocks a blood vessel. Hemorrhagic strokes result from blood vessels breaking and leaking into or around the brain.

Stroke Test

Sudden Cardiac Death

Sudden cardiac death, which can have various causes, is the leading cause of natural death in the United States, accounting for approximately 350,000 deaths each year and exceeding deaths from lung cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS.

Sudden Death Screening

Coronary Calcium Scan/Cardiac

A coronary calcium scan looks for calcium specks 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 occurs when a waxy substance called plaque accumulates in the coronary arteries. Cardiac CT is often used to assess heart chambers, heart valves, and surrounding blood vessels. Dr. Steven Reisman can use Coronary Calcium Scan Tests to measure calcium in the coronary arteries and identify the risk of heart disease.

Coronary CT Calcium Scan

Echocardiography

An echocardiogram is an ultrasound test used to assess the heart's function. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure conducted by a trained sonographer that allows physicians to see the anatomy, structure, and function of all four chambers and valves of the heart. An echocardiogram uses sound waves to create "moving pictures" of the heart. The ultrasound and electrocardiography (ECG) signals are digitally recorded for the doctor to review.

Echocardiography

Electrocardiography

An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a non-invasive, painless test that monitors the heart's rhythm and electrical activity. Dr. Steven Reisman, a world-class heart doctor, may recommend an ECG for those at high risk of heart disease due to a family history of heart disease, smoking, being overweight, or having diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.

EKG

Stress test

Stress tests are performed under the supervision of a doctor to assess the cardiovascular system during exercise and increased demand. Cardiac stress test measures exercise capacity and identifies abnormal exercise responses. Depending on the individual's age, history, symptoms, and risk factors, we offer a variety of stress tests in our facility.

Cardiac Stress Test

“Holter” ECG Monitoring

A Holter monitor is a small wearable ECG recording device used to monitor your heart rhythm over 24 hours. Any abnormal heartbeats/rhythms are detected during your cardiac testing period. The Holter monitor is about the size of a mobile phone and must be worn around your waist. You can continue with your normal everyday activities while using the device.

About “Holter” ECG Monitoring

Vascular Ultrasound

Carotid Vascular Ultrasound testing (also known as a "duplex study") of the carotid arteries is a simple, safe, and painless in-office test that uses sound waves to create images of blood circulation.
