At our Union Square location, we offer a team approach to treating your heart.

You and your family will meet with one of our nationally acclaimed cardiovascular specialists who practices medicine right in your neighborhood. Our heart specialists are experienced in diagnosing and treating patients with heart conditions, including many rare and complex disorders. 

You will partner with a team of doctors, nurses, and other caregivers focusing on your heart health—together, you and your team will create a personalized treatment plan that works for you.

Mount Sinai Heart at Union Square includes experts in interventional cardiology, general cardiology, electrophysiology, heart failure, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiac surgery, and pulmonary hypertension. Together, the team can diagnose and manage conditions such as heart valve disease, heart rhythm disorders, lipid disorders (including cholesterol), hypertension (high blood pressure), and pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs).

In an effort to provide you with the most comprehensive care possible, your cardiologist will often collaborate with many other specialists at Union Square and throughout Mount Sinai Heart. Every patient at Mount Sinai Heart has access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities as well as numerous clinical trials. We know medicine is ever-changing, and our heart experts are continually learning and exploring new ways to improve how we diagnose and treat all our patients no matter what condition you may have.

The physicians at Mount Sinai Heart have faculty appointments at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, one of the nation’s leading medical schools. 

Diagnosis

Imaging is key in diagnosing heart conditions. At Union Square, our cardiac and vascular imaging group offers a range of services that focus on you, your heart and its vascular system (the blood vessels that support your heart). These services include:

  • Echocardiography—an ultrasound that can show the size of your heart, its structure, and activity
  • Cardiac stress testing—sometimes called the “exercise test” and can help determine how well your heart handles the stress of exercise
  • Nuclear cardiology—a noninvasive imaging technique that shows how well your heart pumps blood
  • Carotid ultrasound—an ultrasound that provides an inside view of your carotid arteries, revealing their overall health
  • Upper and lower extremity arterial and venous sonography—ultrasound tests that show how well blood flows through the arteries in both your arms and legs
  • Abdominal aorta and iliac sonography—ultrasound tests that show how well blood flows through the arteries of your lower abdomen
  • Transcranial Doppler—an ultrasound test that measures the speed of blood flow through your brain
  • Renal artery sonography—an ultrasound that shows how well blood flows through the arteries that connect to your kidneys

Treatment

Treatment doesn’t have to interrupt your daily routine—Mount Sinai Union Square provides outpatient diagnosis and heart health monitoring that focuses on anticoagulation and cardiac devices.

Our Anticoagulation Center is there to support you once an arrhythmia diagnosis has been made, or if there’s a history of blood clots. A team of experts supervises and will continually monitor your use of blood thinner medication (anticoagulants). In addition to managing your medication and adjusting your dose when needed, we also provide education and guidance to support your overall heart health.

Our Implantable Cardiac Device Clinic provides ongoing care for your implantable device, such as a pacemaker or internal-cardioverter defibrillator. We check to confirm that your device is working properly and meeting your heart health needs. We also reprogram your heart support device when necessary.

Support Services

We know it can be difficult maintaining a healthy lifestyle, so at Mount Sinai Heart we provide a variety of support services that may help, including exercise classes, nutrition counseling, music therapy, and support groups.
