Heart Diagnostics

Getting to the Heart of the Matter

If doctors suspect a heart issue, it’s likely that you will be referred for one or more diagnostic tests. Depending on your medical history and current symptoms, physicians will determine which ones are right for you.

Prairie Heart Institute Southern Illinois Healthcare offers a comprehensive array of diagnostic cardiac services, several of which are available in all SIH facilities so it is more convenient. Our courteous and professional staff will help with instruction during the tests and make you feel comfortable.
