Cardiologist seeing patient in Orlando, Fl

UCF Health’s cardiology practice incorporates all aspects of heart disease into the patient’s treatment plan, from lifestyle modifications to the latest evidence-based drug therapies.

Our Orlando cardiologists treat a variety of conditions related to the heart. We perform screenings, tests and evaluations to diagnose heart conditions, as well as treatments and monitoring techniques to improve the function of the heart.

We also offer expert treatment for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), which causes people to have a rapidly increasing heartbeat when they stand up from sitting or lying down.

From your very first appointment with us, we show you personal attention and provide compassionate care. We ensure that you are as informed as possible when it comes to your current condition and available treatment options. 

Our Central Florida cardiology specialists work seamlessly to provide patients with the solutions they need to achieve optimal heart health. For your convenience, we see cardiac patients at both UCF Health locations.

On-Site Cardiovascular Lab

When testing is necessary, the East Orlando location is equipped with a noninvasive cardiovascular lab. On-site diagnostic services include echocardiography, stress echocardiograms, Holter monitoring and coronary event monitoring. One of our Central Florida cardiology specialists, Dr. Bernard Gros, is a Level 3-trained echocardiography physician—the highest level that can be earned.

The UCF Health cardiovascular lab has earned echocardiography accreditation in adult transthoracic and adult stress testing from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). This designation ensures the highest level of quality and is required by many insurance carriers.

On-Site Diagnostic Cardiology Services Offered


Echocardiography tests are performed to create real-time images of the heart. This technology sends high frequency sound waves throughout the body and records the “echo” of the sound waves bouncing off of the heart, to provide a visual of the heart’s chambers and vessels. Echocardiograms are used to identify blood clots, to assess how well the heart is pumping blood, and to examine the heart rhythm.

Stress Echocardiograms

Stress echocardiograms, sometimes called stress echos, serve to assess the function of the heart and blood vessels. During this test, the patient will exercise on a stationary bike or treadmill while our cardiologists assesses blood pressure and blood flow. A stress echo is performed to diagnose various heart conditions and to identify decreased blood flow in the vessels. 

Holter Monitoring

Holter monitoring tests involve a portable device that patients wear for 24 to 72 hours at a time. The purpose of these tests is to monitor heart activity, and they’re often used for patients experiencing heart arrythmias, or irregular heartbeats. This device produces an electrocardiogram recording of data that our Orlando cardiologists uses to assess the heart’s rhythm and function during the time it was worn. 

Coronary Event Monitoring

Coronary event monitoring technique is used to record electrical activity in the heart. This test includes a portable device that patients wear for weeks or months at a time. For patients experiencing chest pain, heart arrhythmias or faintness, coronary event monitoring devices are often utilized to monitor electrical activity in the heart during cardiac events. Some monitoring devices use sticky electrode pads, while others are worn on the wrist.
