Heart rhythm disorders (abnormally slow, irregular or fast heartbeats) affect all ages and range from benign to life-threatening conditions. Our expert team relies on a foundation of empathetic patient care to diagnose and treat these conditions. Our dedication to research complements excellent patient care as we discover new tools to predict life-threatening arrhythmias or technologic advancements to provide safety to our procedures. The program's clinicians and researchers work closely with each other to tailor care to the patient's needs for a better quality of life and longevity.
Comprehensive Care Requires a Personalized Approach
From day one, our team—including administrators, nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors and researchers—is involved in optimizing the care to the patient and their family. Our team is available to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
