Chest Pain Specialists
Experts in the Chest Pain Evaluation Unit provide a rapid diagnosis for all patients complaining of chest pain and identify those with life-threatening cardiac conditions. Our exceptional cardiac units ensure that life-saving treatment is immediately available when needed.
Each patient who enters the ED receives an initial evaluation. Those with less serious conditions are placed on the Montefiore ED FastTrack. This innovative program for emergency care helps to reduce waiting time for patients with non-life threatening conditions.
