No food or drink with caffeine for 24 hours before the test: No coffee, tea, sodas with caffeine, or chocolate.
Your stress test can take place at the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center or find cardiology nearby. The stress test is conducted by the NYC cardiac specialist Dr. Steven Reisman.
Dr Reisman is a rare doctor who has the gift of curiosity. After a lifetime (since age 10) of chest pain and 20 years of being told I was simply suffering from anxiety, Dr Reisman was curious enough about my significant cardiac phenomena that he ran tests I had never had before. He found a serious congenital problem that had been passed over on several occasions. Though the problem can’t be fixed, Dr Reisman healed a lifetime of feeling diminished, disrespected and disregarded. When asked why he decided to run these tests when no one else would, he looked at me and replied, “Because I believed you.” There is nothing left to say. ~ Google
