Get Your Stress Test Here

Dr. Zina Hajduczok has been named Medical Director of the Stress Testing Outpatient Lab at WhidbeyHealth Medical Center.

 

Dr. Hajduczok is a Board Certified Cardiologist and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology with 28 years of experience in cardiology. She is also currently a hospitalist at WhidbeyHealth Medical Center.

With the installation of new stress-testing equipment, WhidbeyHealth Medical Center is expanding its cardiac services and providing more availability for outpatient stress test appointments at the hospital. This makes a stress test much more convenient for island patients, who would otherwise have to leave the island for this service.

There are a variety of reasons your doctor might recommend a stress test, including:

  • Help to assess symptoms, such as chest pain, shortness of breath or palpitations, to determine whether they are coming from the heart
  • See if enough blood flows to your heart as you get more active
  • Learn how your heart medications are working
  • Find out if it's likely that you have coronary heart disease
  • Identify abnormal heart rhythms
  • See how well your heart valves are working
  • Help you develop a safe exercise program

Stress tests are covered by Medicare and Medicaid if ordered by your doctor.
