UCR Health Launches Cardiology Clinic

The Cardiology clinic is now up and running at the UCR Health Citrus Tower location. As of now, clinics are held on Thursday afternoons where patients are seen and evaluated by two first-year Cardiology fellows and precepted by Dr. Padmini Varadarajan. Patients can be referred to the clinic for evaluation of a wide range of cardiac problems including: 

  • Coronary artery disease 
  • Cardiomyopathies 
  • Valvular heart disease 
  • Infiltrative disorders (amyloid, sarcoid) 
  • Cardio-oncology 
  • Cardio-rheumatology 
  • Cardio-obstetrics 
  • Arrhythmias 
  • Aortopathies (Marfan, Ehler’s Danlos, Loey’s Dietz, Bicuspid aortic valve, etc.) 
  • Adult Congenital heart diseases 
  • Preoperative evaluation 
  • HTN 
  • Lipid disorders 

Cardiological testing services offered by the CT clinic include ECG, ziopatch (14-day Holter), treadmill stress test, and an exercise stress echo – performed and interpreted by Dr. Varadarajan. The clinic has also set up a very sophisticated Echocardiogram with the implementation of cutting-edge technology including strain, a 3D heart model ejection fraction, and 3D evaluation of valves. There is a plan to expand to a second clinic day on Monday afternoons from July 2021 in hopes to accommodate even more patients.
