New Cardiology Service at BK!

The Cardiology Department of Barnes-Kasson Hospital has seen many improvements over the last several months.  As we continue to expand our Cardiology services, coordinated by David Passetti, Administrator of the Family Health Clinic, we will be able to satisfy the needs of more of our cardiac patients. 

Laura Plant RN, is the lead nurse in the Cardiac Rehabilitation and Cardiac Testing area.  Laura works closely with our cardiologists and Mike and Jonathan Detwiler in the Nuclear Med Department to perform stress testing.  Barnes-Kasson is now adding Stress Echocardiograms to the roster of cardiac testing done at BK.  This is a type of stress test that uses Echocardiography (ultrasound) for the imaging modality.  Mike Detwiler—lead echocardiographer and 35+ year veteran of BK imaging—and Laura both have had additional training to help add this test to our roster.  The addition of this testing availability will make it more convenient for our patients to schedule all their testing right here at BK.  Patients can conveniently schedule office visits, rehabilitation, stress testing (nuclear and stress echo), echocardiograms, EKGs, Holter Monitors, ECAT monitoring, and many other services needed for maintaining good cardiac health.

We are so fortunate to continue to have the Cardiology coverage of some of the region’s best cardiologists.  Dr. Samir Pancholy, Dr. Haitham Abughnia, and Dr. Lakshmi Mizin are all here weekly to hold office hours, do cardiac testing, do professional readings of tests performed, oversee Cardiac Rehab, and do consultations on hospitalized patients. 

If you are in need of cardiac care, would like to schedule an appointment, or have any questions, please call (570) 853-3135 x 131.
