At your initial consultation you will meet one of our specialist physiotherapists. In this session we will explain your condition and it’s implications for you. We will explain how you, your medical team and your cardiac rehabilitation team can work together to optimise your outcome.
In order for us to establish your own ability, you will complete a submaximal exercise test. This will help us to identify your limitations and establish a plan to enhance your recovery and improve your energy levels.
We will also identify your risk factors of heart disease and establish a plan to reduce this risk.
Please note: Our clinic in Stillorgan is quite busy at present – estimated wait time for a consultation is approximately one month.
As our schedule is more flexible in our Kildare based clinic, you may find an earlier consultation date in Heart 2 Heart Kilcullen.

Initial Consultations are conducted by Karen Cradock, specialist cardiac physiotherapist who has over 20 years experience working in cardiac rehabilitation in New Zealand, Australia, England and Ireland.

“Recently I had Open Heart Surgery, the shock of that is enough but then to find the arrival of Covid 19 was Utterly terrifying .Then two Beacons of light appeared on the Horizon , in the form of Karen and Fiona from Heart2 Heart ! They were able to competently and confidently conduct ALL my Post Op rehab through the Telehealth system. On returning to my surgeon for my final check up , he was so impressed by all H2H had done for me. I continue to improve and connect with H2H at least twice weekly for advice, classes and monitoring. The classes are fun too !”
