The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center offers EndoPAT™ testing. This cardiac test provides the earliest method to clinically detect cardiovascular disease. EndoPAT testing is used to detect changes in the condition of the inner lining of your blood vessels as well as diagnosing your risk for a heart attack. This important cardiac test is an innovative, safe and non-invasive diagnostic device for functional vascular health assessment for both large and small arteries.
If the best in class cardiologist, Dr. Steven Reisman, uncovers that your endothelial cells appear to be damaged it can be an indication of the early signs of heart disease and the risk for a heart attack, which are potentially reversible when treated. These cells may become damaged by a fatty diet, smoking, stress hypertension, being over-weight, diabetes or lack of exercise.
Dr. Reisman and his team are very well-organized, thorough, reliable and courteous. Dr. Reisman listens to my concerns carefully and uses the latest technology to examine me. I’m highly impressed by his performance. I would definitely give Dr. Reisman a five-star rating and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone. ~ ZocDoc
