ATS was great from start to finish in the services they provided. From our initial meeting and through the planning process, David and his staff were easy to work with. Before and after the event, we received nothing but positive feedback from the parents of our student-athletes. Being able to offer these services, at a reasonable price, was a big selling point for our parents. I would 100% recommend this service to any of my colleagues.

I enjoy working with David and Eric from ATS. The service they provide is necessary, credible, and to be honest, lifesaving. ATS performs these simple and non invasive tests in a secure and stress free manner at a fraction of the cost of having them done through your doctor. And what you get in return is a level of peace of mind that you can't put a price tag on. I believe this to be a service that every school in America should take advantage of.

“Brandon ended up having two extra electrical pathways on the left side of his heart, along with one on the right that needed to be removed. The cardiologists had to speed up his heart during the surgery to map out the abnormal electrical pathways you found when we had him screened at school by ATS. He’s recovered really well. The cardiologists said these tests probably saved his life because he wouldn't have made it through ROTC Military Physical Competitions scheduled next year having Wolff-Parkinson-White. The $99 we spent on the tests from ATS is the best $99 we've ever spent and ever will spend! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We feel so lucky and blessed the school district had ATS to do the screening!
“I wanted to send a note about my daughter Grace. She had open heart surgery to fix a half dollar size hole in her heart at Children's Mercy. Every surgeon and cardiologist we talked to said she would have needed a transplant in 4 to 5 years because of the damage being done to her heart by the hole. Your test saved her life and we are forever grateful. We will be advocates of this testing continuing. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know.”
“ We did this heart check last fall for our 16 year old cross country runner. She had a small hole in her heart as a baby and we had been assured it was closed over the years. No murmur was ever detected. We decided to do the ATS Heart Check for peace of mind. It was the best test we could have spent money on. Not only did they detect an abnormality, but also learned the hole in her heart (an ASD), is not small, nor could it be closed in the cath lab. She will be having open heart surgery in July. If this had gone undetected, she could have suffered heart stress during her future pregnancies and had severe heart problems in her fifties or later. Thank you for offering this screening. We will be forever grateful!
It’s been an overwhelming 7 days. We told our son last night. He was overwhelmed.. .tears... thinking... talking... listening... more tears. He asked us if this could have killed him. What a question to be asked by your 15 year old son?!?! Our doctor appointment went well this morning. He is conservative which we love. The doctor did a great job of explaining what Wolff-Parkinson White (WPW) is, what it means and how to fix it! Our son listened intently, asked questions and held his own. Today my husband took him to SME weight room to talk to the Coach …. Coach took the time to talk to him, help him understand he was going to be fine, shared a couple successful stories and then challenged him to work hard and start on varsity football team next year. I can say that he will take that challenge. That chat and the preparation my husband and I went through to get ready for today was a successful journey. You are/were instrumental in the success of today. We will be forever grateful for your testing and finding WPW….and the ability to fix it before something tragic happened. Thanks for your support. I am coming out of a haze and I am grateful to see the light of a brighter day. I will want to thank the SME school district, ATS and the Jordan Mann Foundation when this is over if you could direct me to the people who make this possible, I want to be an advocate.
Thanks for helping me through this terrifying experience.
“I saw a young man in my clinic that had a potentially life threatening ECG abnormality that was picked up by Athletic Testing Solutions. Through their solid testing technique and well trained staff, the young man will be getting needed treatment through my office and will be able to return to sports activity in the near future. Congratulations to ATS!”

“ATS is providing a tremendous service for the Olathe Public Schools by providing our student-athletes affordable and convenient testing for undetectable heart conditions. Through the heart imaging and other tests, parents can obtain information on their child’s physical condition that can’t be achieved thru the typical pre-participation physical exams. ATS does all the heavy lift-ing; signups, setup, and testing. As a district athletic director, all was required to do was secure a location for testing and provide in-formation to the building athletic directors and coaches. This is a great program that all school districts should take advantage of.”

“Earlier this year we took our son to a screening locally. Although the whole process did not take a long time, ATS was thorough in the EKG and sonogram tests. We feel comfortable that if there were any issues, they would have been detected. We feel it was money well spent.”
