WHAT IS AN EKG?
At Concierge Medicine of Columbus, our team of physicians takes heart conditions seriously. One of the diagnostics we offer to obtain an understanding of your heart's function is an EKG (electrocardiogram). An EKG uses noninvasive methods to record the electrical activity in the heart and can be done in one of our treatment rooms or any accredited hospital. This device is able to identify an abnormal heartbeat (arrhythmia), check up on a pacemaker, detect a previous heart attack, and see if any arteries are clogged or otherwise compromised. Patients in Columbus, GA with heart issues may require periodic check-ins to ensure that their health is in good shape.
