Our doctors near you at Sunrise Urgent Care offer on-site EKG electrocardiogram (EKG) and lab services for quick analysis of a patient’s heart. This test is used for general health purposes and sports physicals to communicate which parts of the heart may be under strain or working too hard. The gold-standard diagnostic test reveals signs of damage to the heart, such as a heart defect, past or current heart attacks, and poor circulation that could exacerbate future heart conditions.
The EKG tests performed by our doctors are most often completed in less than 30 minutes. They are pain-free, and they provide almost immediate results, making them ideal for anyone needing a clean EKG to pass a sports physical or a pre-employment physical. Some things you can do at home to prepare for your EKG at Sunrise Urgent Care include:
