Non-Invasive Cardiac Testing
At Northpointe Heart Center, our physicians and fully trained clinical staff ascribe to the highest standards of cardiac testing. The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) has accredited various programs within our testing lab, which attests to our continued focus on the highest level of cardiac care.
All nuclear stress testing and vein clinic procedures cancelled within 24 hours of scheduled appointment time are subject to $100 cancellation fee.
Testing appointments can be scheduled by the referring physician’s office, by the patient, or by our staff via faxed information or by our specialized EPIC diagnostic testing order. This order saves your staff and patients valuable time and insures that the correct testing is being completed.
As soon as the testing order is placed through EPIC, our staff will contact your patient directly and schedule all necessary testing.
NHC participates in most insurances, and we request the patient’s assistance in obtaining referral forms when needed. The test appointment will be confirmed with the patient 24 hours in advance. New patients will be requested to arrive a few minutes early to complete the required paperwork.
Test results will be provided to the referring physician within 24-72 hours of the test performance via In-Basket or fax (a formal report can be mailed to the office upon request). No test results will be reported to the patient unless indicated by the referring physician.
In the event that the test results require more immediate attention, the referring physician will be contacted via telephone with the results per the cardiologist’s recommendation. Additional follow-up care with the cardiologist is available upon the referring physician’s request.
Our Main Testing office is located on the third floor of the Northpointe Medical Plaza, located halfway between William Beaumont Hospital and the I-696 freeway on the southwest corner of the Woodward and Catalpa (11 ½ Mile Road) intersection in Berkley. The building is easily identified and there is ample parking in the rear.
While the majority of our testing is performed at our Main Campus in Berkley, we do offer some tests at our Sterling Heights office as well. When calling, please let us know if you would prefer to schedule your tests at our Sterling Heights office and we will do our best to accommodate you.
