Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Jets 360: Dr. Matthew Martinez Discusses the Importance of Sports Cardiology

Our sports cardiologists are experts in diagnosing cardiovascular symptoms caused by both genetic and acquired heart conditions.


Services are individualized to each patient and include:

  • Comprehensive physical exam and assessment of history
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG), if necessary – assesses the heart’s electrical activity
  • Cardiopulmonary exercise testing or VO2 max study – evaluates aerobic endurance through oxygen uptake
  • Cardiovascular imaging – produces 3-D images of the heart using non-invasive technology, like echocardiogramcomputed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Stress tests – identifies potential conditions that may decrease blood flow to the heart muscle
  • Education on symptom management and appropriate activity levels
  • Genetic testing
  • Exercise recommendations

Athletes on all levels – recreational, high school, collegiate and professional - may benefit from our program.
