Dr. Beckerman joins the specialists at Providence Sports Care Center

I am personally excited to join the rehabilitation and orthopedic specialists at the new clinic and am offering on-site cardiology services one day a week; including consultations, stress testing, and echocardiography. I’m looking forward to this opportunity in this specialized setting, as Providence Rehabilitation Services has created a truly amazing clinic space with incredible diagnostic and therapeutic resources for our patients.

Some examples of the type of patients we will care for at Providence Sports Care Center include:
  • People interested in starting athletics (i.e. training for a 5K or joining a gym) but have cardiac risk factors and are curious about a screening.
  • People who currently participate in sports or exercise but have cardiac symptoms (i.e. chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, declining performance).
  • People with a history of heart disease who want to remain active or want to start an exercise program.
  • People who need preoperative evaluations, particularly for orthopedic surgeries.
