Electrocardiograms (EKG Testing) With No Appointment Required at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Cutler Bay
EKG testing is offered at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Cutler Bay and no appointment is ever required. Our board-certified, UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians use electrocardiograms to assess a wide range of cardio health situations, helping our patients get the care they need without the cost or expense of going to the emergency room.
Electrocardiograms are used to measure the electrical activity of the heart. This can provide detailed information about a patient’s heart rate, as well as whether or not he or she is showing signs of hypertension or a previous heart attack. Some individuals have an EKG as part of a routine well-patient assessment, while other people have an EKG as a diagnostic test for unexplained symptoms.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care, we provide routine electrocardiograms as well as diagnostic EKG testing when patients are experiencing:
· Shortness of breath
· Chest pain
Anyone who is experiencing possible signs of a heart attack or stroke should head directly to the emergency room. However, in non-emergent situations, UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Cutler Bay can help patients find the cause of their discomfort and determine the most appropriate plan for treating it. Any time that we perform an EKG, we analyze the results on site, then send it to a UHealth radiologist for an expert second opinion to ensure an accurate and conclusive diagnosis.
Appointments are never required to come to UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Cutler Bay for electrocardiograms or other immediate medical services. Patients can walk in whenever it’s most convenient for an EKG, X-ray, or any other type of diagnostic test or treatment that we offer.
