An EKG is a painless test that measure the electrical activity of your heart through a series of electrode patches placed on your chest, arms, and legs. If you have heart disease, or are suspected to have a heart condition, you will likely undergo an EKG.
The EKG takes only a few minutes to complete and helps Doc Matt understand more about your heart function, including:
- Your heart rhythm
- The blood flow to your heart
- Whether or not you have had a heart attack
- Any abnormalities, such as thickened heart muscle
Because an EKG is a quick procedure, Doc Matt will discuss your results with you immediately after the test. Your monthly membership fee covers unlimited visits with Doc Matt so matter how many follow-ups you need, you’ll never pay extra for additional appointments. That’s one of the benefits of direct primary care.
