If you have symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain, shortness of
breath, an irregular heartbeat, or heavy heartbeats, a stress test may
be what you need. It's a simple test that helps your doctor find out
how well your heart handles its workload. Find out who needs them and
the various types of stress testing available today.
To learn more about the inner workings of a heart stress test and what
the results tell you, join Christopher Thompson, MD, a board certified
and fellowship-trained cardiologist with Memorial Medical Group, for
The Shape of Your Heart, a free seminar.
After graduating from LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans, Dr. Thompson
completed his internship at Charity Hospital in New Orleans, his residency
at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, and his cardiology fellowship
at the University of Florida Medical Center in Jacksonville, FL. In addition
to general cardiology, his areas of expertise include cardiac catheterization,
cardiac rehabilitation and interventional cardiology.
The Shape of Your Heart will be held Friday, February 23 at 12 noon in the Shearman Conference
Room at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. A light lunch will be
served, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
