What Does Our Center Provide?

The New York Cardiology Diagnostic Center is a world-class facility for cardiac testing and treatment. We use cutting-edge stress tests and cardiac screenings to diagnose a variety of heart conditions, including:

Some of the tests we offer to assess and diagnose all types of cardiac ailments are as follows:

  • Cardiac Screening, such as:
    • High Blood Pressure
    • Sports Cardiology / Athletic Heart
    • Stroke
    • Sudden Cardiac Death
    • Heart Palpitations
    • Coronary Disease
  • Cardiac Testing, such as:
    • ECG / Electrocardiogram
    • Echocardiogram (echo)
    • Vascular Ultrasound
    • Electrocardiographic (ECG)
    • Endo-PAT Test
    • Stress Test
Your heart health is important, and the best form of prevention is early detection. Dr. Reisman will personally supervise your diagnostic procedure, ensuring that you receive the best cardiac care possible!

As with many diseases, early detection is the best approach and can prevent heart issues from deteriorating. It is essential to consult with your cardiac specialist to rule out the risk of a heart attack. If necessary, Dr. Reisman can refer you to a cardiac center that specializes in more sophisticated testing.

Why Visit Dr. Reisman?

The majority of patients come to Dr. Reisman with unexplained heart symptoms. If you have a family history of heart disease, you can schedule an appointment to learn more about your risk factors for heart disease. Dr. Reisman can advise you on how to protect your cardiovascular health. Choosing a highly qualified specialist is critical when dealing with something as complex as heart disease.

Dr. Reisman was part of a group of select doctors with the Food And Drug Administration evaluating intravenous dipyridamole thallium testing prior to the approval of this technique by the FDA in patients who cannot exercise.

Dr. Reisman has presented original research findings at both the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association annual meetings on the following topics:

  1. Early detection of "high risk" heart disease
  2. The evaluation of patients without symptoms with underlying heart blockages including those with "silent ischemia"
  3. The prognosis of patients with blockages and the use of dipyridamole thallium testing in patients who cannot exercise to identify severe blockages
  4. Detection of severe coronary artery disease in the elderly
  5. The evaluation of heart disease in patients who cannot walk secondary to a circulatory problem

Cardiovascular Diagnostic Technology

Why Should You See a Cardiology Doctor Instead of a Primary Care Physician If You Have Heart Problems?

The quality of cardiovascular care is better with the specialist than internal medicine or primary care doctors. Cardiac doctors are more likely than internists and family practitioners to perform on-site testing, such as a stress test, Holter monitoring, and echocardiography.

According to the study “Effect of cardiologist care …” published on PUBMED: “Compared with non-specialist care, cardiologist care improves patient adherence to evidence-based medications and might thus favourably affect mortality and readmission”

According to the study “Knowledge, Patterns of Care, and Outcomes of Care for Generalists and Specialists” published on PUBMED: "Patients cared for by cardiologists had a significantly lower adjusted mortality and hospital length of stay."

Credentials and Achievements

Dr. Reisman is dedicated to providing the best cardiac care possible, holding a number of academic appointments as well as clinical and research fellowships. He has published numerous studies and is an innovator who is active in advancing cardiology.
