Specialist Hypertension Consultations

The physician specialists at Toronto Hypertension Clinic are well-equipped to provide comprehensive assessments for any patient that is referred with elevated blood pressure.

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is the gold standard for diagnosing hypertension, distinguishing between essential, white-coat, and masked hypertension.


An echocardiography is a cardiac ultrasound that assesses the structure and function of the heart, especially in cases of chronic hypertension, and can identify potential alterations to the heart’s structure and function.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An ECG is a simple, single electrical reading from the heart that is performed at rest. Several non-invasive electrodes are applied by a technician to the chest wall and a 10-second reading is taken.

Holter Monitoring

A Holter monitor is a continuous electrocardiogram (ECG) that records the electrical activity of the heart to check for any potentially dangerous electrical abnormalities (arrhythmias).
