What is AFib?
AFib is the most common arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) affecting Americans. It is also the most overlooked. Diagnosing and treating the condition and its side effects requires the expertise of a trained specialist.
Board-certified electrophysiologists, specialized in heart rhythm disorders, administer our clinic. Each patient receives a care plan that is coordinated by a team of physicians, nurses and ancillary clinicians experienced in the care of patients with AFib.
AFib Nurse Navigator
Our AFib nurse navigator is a trained medical professional who helps to coordinate each patient’s care. The navigator provides education on each component of the treatment plan and address questions or concerns patients have. Our nurse navigator also keeps each patient’s referring physician updated on how the patient is doing and what the transition and future treatment plan should be.
