A common in-office diagnostic tool is an electrocardiogram — abbreviated as EKG or ECG. It’s a test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. With each beat, an electrical impulse (or wave) travels through the heart. This wave causes the muscle to squeeze and pump blood from the heart throughout the body. Dr. Weisz uses an EKG to help diagnose heart-related problems such as chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness or fainting. She will examine the results looking for such anomalies as an irregular heartbeat and to evaluate the overall health of the heart.
Despite such relatively rare side effects, a nebulizer breathing treatment is an effective way ensure quick and thorough relief for patients with respiratory ailments including asthma and COPD.

While a flu shot may not prevent you from getting the flu, it will definitely reduce your symptoms should you contract it. The same goes for a pneumonia shot. Dr. Weisz is prepared to administer both or either vaccine to all members of your family. Older adults and people with certain health issues are more likely to get pneumonia. Their immune systems will experience more difficulty in fighting off such diseases. That’s why getting a flu or a pneumonia shot is particularly important.
