Am I Eligible for Electrophysiology Services?

If you believe you may have a condition causing an irregular heart rhythm, we recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss diagnostic and treatment options. We conduct various diagnostic tests, such as Electrocardiograms (EKGs), Holter Monitors, and Event Recorders to detect irregular heart rhythms. Electrophysiology also includes procedures to address conditions causing these abnormal rhythms, such as cardiac ablation, pacemaker or defibrillator device implantation, the innovative WATCHMANTM procedure for patients at high risk of stroke, and much more.

Based on diagnostic results, certain medications may be prescribed to decrease the risk of blood clots. Amiodarone, Apixaban, and Warfarin are common medications prescribed for these purposes. Be sure to discuss any other medications you are taking with your cardiologist before starting any of these. Stop use and notify your physician immediately if symptoms worsen.
