Why I became a doctor:

I was 18 years old, in the peak of physical condition, working as a lifeguard in the summer when I suddenly became very ill. I underwent several investigations, repeatedly and finally was misdiagnosed and had unnecessary surgery. I then was somehow introduced to a world famous gastroenterologist who diagnosed me instantly and inspired me to be a doctor. I felt the world needed more caring and good physicians and I wanted to be like him. At the very end of my training, in electrophysiology, I met my second star, my mentor, who is world renowned but reminds me to be humble and “never take ourselves too seriously”.

My main principles in medicine are similar to the rules of life. Treat patients like you would treat your own family. Always try to do the right thing for your patient even if it is difficult to do because of obstacles imposed by insurance companies. Remember what it is like to be a patient.

Please keep in mind I started the group on my own for several years. I have insisted that certain principles be upheld, keeping in mind that every doctor is an individual and has his own style .

Other physicians operate with different ethical guidelines. We are often asked why we don’t do the same, but the answer is simple; we discuss issues and if it does not go along with our basic beliefs, we follow our own path.

Cardiac Arrhythmia Services

We are sometimes referred to as the electricians of the heart. We treat all types of heart rhythm disorders: hearts that beat slowly, quickly or erratically. We evaluate patients with palpitations to help diagnose the etiology of palpitations and then cure the underlying problem. In addition to palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety, dizziness (syncope) are some other manifestations of arrhythmia.

Common arrhythmias that we deal with are atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and ventricular tachycardia (VT). We usually try medication to treat arrhythmias but when medications are insufficient we may recommend an ablation procedure.

There are different types of ablation but they all aim at eliminating the source of the arrhythmia. Our practice is at the forefront of technology and we use the newest techniques and equipment available to provide the safest and most effective therapy to our patients. We implant and manage all types of pacemakers and defibrillators. We have one of the largest and most efficient remote monitoring programs in the state of Florida. Remote monitoring allows us to watch over and treat our patients in between their office visits. At Cardiac Arrhythmia Services we have 3 cardiac electrophysiologists, 2 physician assistants, 2 remote monitoring technicians, 3 nurses and a staff of 19 people who all work together on daily basis to ensure that our patients get the best care possible.
