How Does Nuclear Medicine Testing Work?
Our cardiac testing team uses Cardiolite or sestamibi, a radioactive substance known as a radiotracer, to reveal any partial obstructions in the coronary arteries. Once the Cardiolite is injected into the bloodstream intravenously, the radiotracer will be distributed to the heart to highlight good and poor blood flow. A special camera will take a series of images, highlighting normal blood flow and portions of the heart not receiving enough blood flow because of a blockage in the coronary arteries. Our physician will interpret the images, search for any signs of disease or abnormality, and make a diagnosis before discussing treatment options.
Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with my visit. I don't know what I expected but the Doctor was very thorough and asked many questions, which I loved. He did seem concerned and wanted to cover all my concerns. The front desk staff was ok. Overall I had a great experience.
Dr. John has been my doctor for four plus years and he always provides the best care for whatever is it that I need. The visits are extremely accommodating and the in person appointments are always efficient and quick. Very clean and spacious office as well. The staff are always welcoming. Thank you so much for all that you do for me!!
Great provider. Listens to all concerns and orders necessary tests. Always punctual. And has a great bedside manner. Have been their patient for the past five years. Highly recommend.
He explained to my husband and myself what we were facing. Also, his personality and bedside manner was superb. Not worried about this procedure at this time. Just waiting to have it scheduled. Office staff up front were caring and polite. Just be glad when all is done and over.
Dr John has been my Cardiologist for many years. He never acts hurried to move me along. The care I have gotten is exceptional!
