Our Cardiology Department offers many diagnostic services in one convenient location. Not only are these services available for our patients, but outside providers can refer patients to our practice for testing as well.
Diagnostic Tests (Performed at RMH)
We also have a staff of trained professionals to monitor various chronic medical conditions on site for patients followed by our cardiologists.
ProTime Clinic--Patients for whom one of our cardiologists has prescribed Coumadin can have their protimes monitored by the nurses in our ProTime Clinic. We offer on-site laboratory services and contact patients the same day with instructions.
Pacemaker Lab--Our pacemaker nurses monitor patients regularly via telephonic pacemaker checks and interrogate the pacemakers more thoroughly when patients are seen in the office. We also follow patients with implantable defibrillators. The nurses have attended special training in the field to become highly qualified in treating pacemaker patients.
Cardiac Device Support Group
An implantable device can mean lifestyle and anxiety. RMH offers a support that will provide education, and opportunity for questions, and a sharing of concerns and experiences. The support group meets quarterly. Contact RMH HealthSource at 800-433-4580 to register.
The nurses at Harrisonburg Medical Associates are also available to answer any questions you may have regarding your implantable device.
