What are the Signs that You Might Need a Cardiac Ultrasound Near Tarpon Springs?

Health issues tend to arise suddenly, making you question your overall health in the span of a few hours. It can be scary, especially when your heart is involved, but that’s why Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic offers cardiac ultrasound near Tarpon Springs. Matters of the heart are emergencies, and every second counts, so never ignore any indicators where you might need your cardiac system checked.

The general physicians and nursing staff at Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic can assess your risks to determine if a cardiac ultrasound is right for you. Here are some indicators where an ultrasound might be prescribed.

  • Consistently high blood pressure or dangerously high cholesterol.
  • History of blood clots.
  • Heart palpitations throughout the day.
  • Persistent chest pain and pressure between the shoulder blades.
  • Swollen ankles, legs, wrists, and hands due to fluid retention.
  • Shortness of breath or trouble catching your breath.

What Does a Cardiac Ultrasound Check For?

Cardiac ultrasounds allow doctors to see the interior function and structure of the heart. It’s quick, pain-free, and easy, giving doctors a good idea of what’s causing palpitations, pressure, or irregular symptoms.

A cardiac sonographer performs the ultrasound itself, and it involves moving a gel-slicked device (called a transducer) over the chest area to “see” the heart.

How Long Does a Cardiac Ultrasound Take?

On average, a cardiac ultrasound takes less than an hour. Typically, 30 to 45 minutes can vary by patient and the severity of health issues. You won’t feel anything – zero pain – from the ultrasound machine while the sonographer gathers pictures of your heart.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
