Our multidisciplinary team uses existing resources and collaborates with various sub-specialities, such as Cardiologists, Respirologists, Radiologists, Internal Medicine, Endocrinologists and Family Physicians along with Dietitians, Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, and Sonographers to provide fast, efficient, and complete consultative and diagnostic services, evaluations and therapies. We believe in direct communication with the referring physician, and ongoing and regular updates. In addition, at the clinic multiple languages are spoken further increasing access to the patient. These include English, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Polish, Swahili, Tagalog, Ukrainian, Gujarati and Russian.
Heart disease is universal. At ACCD we understand that although the signs, symptoms and treatment of heart disease is the same across all ethnic boundaries, access to information is not. By developing and providing educational resources in multiple languages we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of cardiac care and service to help patients better understand their risk for heart disease and how they can reduce their risk, and help modify their risk factors.
Advanced Cardiology Consultants and Diagnostics (ACCD) is a one of kind clinic in Western Canada offering complete cardiopulmonary investigations under one roof.
Over the last couple of years, we have grown and have continued to expand offering a wide variety of services for patients. At ACCD we believe in advanced thinking and this is reflected in the our use of advanced innovative technology focusing on providing exceptional, evidence based, patient centered care, such as on site Exercise Stress Echocardiograms and Carotid Intimal Medial Thickness.
ACCD was the first clinic in Alberta to offer onsite Exercise Stress Echocardiograms to help diagnose various cardiac diseases. This unique modality is more specific than the thallium stress test without the harmful radiation exposure.
