Hawthorne Heart Center


Hawthorne Heart Center is fully equipped with all non-invasive tools to diagnose most cardiac conditions.

Our state of the art ultrasound is able to do echocardiography and Doppler study along with peripheral arterial ultrasound and carotid studies.

We are able to do electrocardiograms, 24-hour holter monitors, and event recording to address cardiac arrhythmias. We do regular treadmills, cardiolite treadmills (nuclear studies), adenosine cardiolite, and dobutamine cardiolites studies on premises. Invasive procedures such as cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, and stents are done in nearby hospitals.
