    Meet Our Cardiac Electrophysiologists

    It’s important to have a comprehensive evaluation from a board certified cardiac electrophysiologist (EP).
    An EP is a subspecialist in cardiology who has completed extra training in diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disturbances. Your EP will enable you to understand all your options, particularly as more treatments are now available.
