We provide follow-up treatment and assessment for patients with pacemakers, Implanted Cardiac Defibrillators (ICD), Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) devices and loop recorders. Clinic visits are to optimize device performance settings and longevity as well as to detect and correct any device malfunctions. Event Monitor services are also provided. Event Monitor testing allows a patient to activate a recorder that measures the electrical activity of the heart when they feel a specific symptom they have reported to their physician.
A referral is required.
