At Malek Medical Center, we are proud to provide stress testing services to our patients. Stress testing is important to knowing how well the heart is functioning. This test is most frequently performed on a treadmill using an EKG machine to monitor your heart performance when you are active.
Prior to your appointment, you should get a good night’s rest and be sure to avoid caffeine and other stimulants before your test. We ask that you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing to your appointment, as well as comfortable tennis shoes.
Be sure to consult with your doctor prior to making your appointment to discuss your medications, as some may need to be temporarily discontinued in order to achieve accurate test results.
