AdventHealth Lake Wales is committed to keeping your heart beating strong so you can enjoy all life has to offer.
- A Clear Picture of Your Heart Health
If you’re experiencing symptoms of cardiovascular disease, your primary care physician or cardiologist may recommend diagnostic testing. These tests offer important insights about your heart so your provider can create a treatment plan that’s right for you.

- Cerebrovascular Studies
- Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
- Heart Monitors
- Peripheral Arterial Studies
- Peripheral Venous Studies
