Cardiology Services

We put our heart into protecting yours. Our cardiac services are rooted in the expertise of the Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute, a leading healthcare provider recognized as the number one ranked cardiac care center in the United States by U.S. News & World Report since 1994.

This service is ideal for individuals who have uncontrolled high blood pressure, episodes of chest pain or may require cholesterol and/or arrhythmia management.

The cardiology team uses preventive therapy and comprehensive testing to assess a patient’s risk of developing cardiac disease. Our cardiology service is covered by OHIP, requires a physician referral and is only available for adults. 

When necessary we provide comprehensive testing for those seeking risk identification of cardiac threatening diseases.


  • Resting Electrocardiogram (ECG) A recording of electrical activity within the heart. ECG abnormalities may signal potentially serious heart problems that are treatable when detected early.

  • V02 max A treadmill-based exercise test that provides an enhanced assessment of your cardiorespiratory function and your fitness level.
