Anemia makes life miserable. The sources are many - heavy menses, childbirth, surgery, trauma and even long distance running! Everything becomes difficult and energy just isn’t there for all the good things in life. The good news is that this is a reversible problem if it is due to iron deficiency. For many people, oral iron is intolerable due to unpleasant and unavoidable stomach side effects and for others oral iron is simply inadequate. Our clinics use state of the art infusion tools to deliver IV iron as ordered in consultation with your physician. Most patients begin to feel better within days.Private Only

It might surprise you, but your heart runs on electricity just like your computer! This is a test often used as part of an Internal Medicine consultation due to its ability to detect a wide variety of cardiac diseases. 12 leads will be attached by stickers to your chest and the electrical signature of your heart is recorded. This test has no contraindications and is painless. No electricity is applied to your body, it simply detects the electrical activity of your heart. This test is then interpreted by a board-certified General Internist.MSP Covered
Cardiac Treadmill Testing
This takes ECG testing to the next level. By monitoring your heart’s electrical patterns during exercise, we can detect or rule out coronary artery disease and a wide variety of arrhythmias. This test can be modified so that even the very elderly can participate. Your technologist will ask you questions to ensure you do not have one of the rare reasons this test cannot be performed. This test is then interpreted by a board-certified General Internist.MSP Covered
Ever wondered what is happening when your heart skips a beat? This 24 hour or 48 hour test monitors your heart for arrhythmia, which can sometimes be dangerous but is often benign. This is a painless test much like the ECG, but is done at home where you are encouraged to live normally (though avoid all water, for obvious reasons!). This test is then interpreted by a board-certified General Internist.MSP Covered
Impedance-based Body Composition Analysis
This Health Canada Certified test uses electrical impedance and a computer algorithm to determine the tissue make-up of your body. It provides precise data on body fat mass, muscle mass, water mass as well as crucial data on visceral (central) fat which plays an important role in disease. This test is often used to monitor response to lifestyle change as it is far more useful data than a simple scale or BMI calculation.
