Clin­i­cal car­diac elec­tro­phys­i­ol­o­gy is a dynam­ic field. The heart elec­tri­cal sys­tem is com­pli­cat­ed. I believe that it is extreme­ly impor­tant to spend enough time with my patients and ful­ly explain their prob­lem in order for them to be able to for­mu­late an informed deci­sion. I like to be involved in all aspects of the car­diac care for my patients in order to deliv­er com­plete and com­pre­hen­sive care.
