Alarming increases in the number of sudden cardiac death in young athletes have prompted Caduceus Medical Group to offer patients at its pediatric office, Caduceus 4 Kids, complimentary EKG testing. This service is offered to coincide with the increased demand for physicals in preparation for fall sports.
Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
Routine EKG testing has been controversial due to the additional cost, often creating an additional financial burden for families that have seen co-pays and deductibles increase with the implementation of the ACA in 2014. Caduceus is committed to continue its pledge as one of the trendsetters in the medical field, putting patients before profits and ultimately enhancing the overall patient experience. This decision will continue to enhance patient care by expanding its existing complimentary concierge services, thereby improving medical outcomes for patients.
Caduceus Medical Director, Gregg DeNicola MD, adds, If we can identify even one young patient with an otherwise unknown cardiac condition, thus preventing a serious or even life threatening outcome, then the implementation of this new policy speaks for itself. Dr. DeNicola also shares that with early detection many of these outcomes could have been avoided, as referenced in this recent article in the Wall Street Journal.
Both existing patients and those new to Caduceus may take advantage of this complimentary service, available on the Yorba Linda campus at Caduceus 4 Kids in the Life Center, 18210 Yorba Linda Blvd. Ste. 404. No appointment is necessary, and EKG walk-ins are also welcome.
