Completing surgery clearance tests is a bit easier in the Greater Lansing area. MSU Cardiology offers walk-in EKG or electrocardiogram testing Monday – Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a doctor’s order.

EKG, sometimes known as ECG, tests are often part of the clearance tests surgeons order to understand the state of a patients’ health prior to surgery. While the no appointment format is ideal for presurgical patients to complete their testing, it is available for all patients 5 years of age and older, with a doctor’s order.

Your test will be completed, then read by our board-certified cardiologist and the results sent to your surgeon.

"Once we moved into our new location, we were able to increase, not only access to our specialty providers, but increase our testing availability as well.  The additional capacity helps serve our community by allowing early intervention to possibly prevent serious conditions.”

Laura Kuczajda, director

Available weekdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at MSU Medicine Specialty Center, 4650 South Hagadorn Rd., Suite 100, East Lansing, MI 48823.

MSU Cardiology offers on site testing, consultations as well as hospital interventional treatments such as ablation for cardiac arrhythmias. To learn more about our services, visit the Cardiology web page
