Doctors & patients are saying about 'Beat Your A-Fib'...


"If I had [your book] 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”

Roy Salmon, Patient, A-Fib Free,
Adelaide, Australia

"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."

Patient Advice: The First Doctor You See isn’t Necessarily the Right One for You

Advice from Patients Now Free from the Burden of Atrial Fibrillation

Susan Klein, comes from a long line of people with cardiac rhythm disorders. She recalls finally being properly diagnosed:

Susan K.

“I began reading everything I could about the condition but mainly how to make it stop.

Along the way I can’t recall how many times I was told to take the medicine and stop looking for trouble. 

I’m so glad I didn’t listen to the naysayers, because today I’m A-Fib free and loving it.”

Warren Welsh, Melbourne, Australia, talks about the years he needlessly endured A-Fib, in part, based on one doctor’s advice:

Warren W.

“I would urge any A-Fib sufferers not to make the same mistakes I did by not researching their treatment options.

…I experienced several years of unnecessary suffering by accepting an opinion of one specialist who said I would have to live in A-Fib.

Sheri Weber, from Boyce, VA, shared this advice about finding the right doctor for your treatment goals:

Sheri Weber on A-fib.com

Sheri W.

“I wish I had realized that the first doctor you see is not necessarily the right one for you. I fooled around way too long, believing what my cardio doctor said. I should have been thinking outside the box. 

Run―don’t walk―to the best specialist you can find in your area.” 

How to Find the Best Doctor for You

To be cured of your A-Fib, you may need to ‘fire’ your current doctor.

Seek a heart rhythm specialist, a cardiac electrophysiologist (EP), who will partner with you to create a treatment plan—a path to finding your cure or best outcome.

To make this happen, see my page, Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib.

The First Doctor You See is Not Necessarily the Right One for You.

Daniel Shares About A-Fib: “I Have Gotten a Lot of Bad Advice From Various GPs”

Advice from a patient now free from the burden of Atrial Fibrillation: Educate yourself on all treatment options before making decisions.

Daniel Doane, Sonora, California, talks about all the false info he got from doctors.

“Don’t believe your GP. I have gotten a lot of bad advice from various GPs.

Daniel D.

• ‘Just take a little digoxin and you will be fine.’
• ‘You are probably missing some micro-nutrient. If you buy this product I sell, it may well provide that and stop your A-Fib.’
• ‘I think that all of these tests your EP is requesting are just a waste of money.’
• (From a cardiologist) ‘Don’t worry about a little A-Fib. It won’t kill you.’ “

“If you have Atrial Fibrillation, see an electrophysiologist. If you aren’t comfortable with what they are saying, see another one.” 

Daniel did his research and is now A-Fib-free after a Totally Thoracoscopic (TT) Mini-Maze operation.

If you want to read more of Daniel Doane’s story, you’ll find it on pp. 152-162 in Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure by Steve S. Ryan, PhD. Learn more about my book.

Don’t Believe Everything You’re Told About A-Fib

A Tale of Two Ablations and Why All EPs Are Not Equal

I just received an email and O.R. (Operating Room) reports from Louis who in 2014 had a successful catheter ablation by Dr. David Wilber at Loyola in Chicago. Dr. Wilber is nationally known for both his ablation skills and experience, as well as for his research.

First Ablation with Dr. David Wilber

Dr. Wilbur’s ablation of Louis was textbook. Louis’ A-Fib terminated during his ablation procedure, which is considered the ideal outcome.

But Dr. Wilber didn’t stop there.

Dr. Wilber didn’t stop there; he found A-Fib signals coming from the Superior Vena Cava (SVC).

He used isoproterenol (IV medication) to try to induce non-PV triggers and found A-Fib signals coming from the Superior Vena Cava (SVC). He isolated the SVC and could no longer induce any arrhythmias in Louis. (Some EPs would not work that hard, and would have trouble finding and ablating non-PV triggers.)

Relocation, Then Second Ablation―Failure!

But later Louis did develop A-Fib/Flutter again. He had relocated to a distant state so he selected a second EP and had a second ablation there. This ablation was a failure.

After touching up the right pulmonary veins (PVs), the second EP used adenosine and pacing to try to induce arrhythmia signals. He induced Flutter and isolated the right atrium by making a cavo-tricuspid isthmus line. He documented bidirectional block in the right atrium, but Louis still had Flutter.

The second EP didn’t map and track down the flutter.

Rather than map and track down the source of the Flutter, the EP simply Electrocardioverted Louis and stopped the ablation at that point. Then he put Louis on the dreaded antiarrhythmic drug amiodarone.

Still in Flutter―Amiodarone Side Effects

But after the second ablation, Louis still had A-Fib/Flutter.

On amiodarone, Louis developed the symptoms of loss of weight, thinning hair, extreme dry mouth, increased hand tremors, etc. Louis was taken off of amiodarone and is doing better. But he is still bothered by Flutter. See Amiodarone Effective but Toxic.

I’m working with Louis to get him to a “master” EP, a highly skilled EP with a high success rate with difficult A-Fib cases.

What Went Wrong with Louis’ Second Ablation?

From what can be deduced from Louis’ O.R. (Operating Room) report, there seems to be no mention of checking for entrance and exit block after ablating Louis’ pulmonary veins.

As a “crutch”, he put Louis on amiodarone, the most effective but also the most toxic of the antiarrhythmic drugs.

The second EP did use adenosine and pacing and induced a Flutter circuit. He ablated the right atrium and made a cavo-tricuspid isthmus line to make sure no Flutter came from the right atrium. But Louis still had Flutter.

Instead of using any of today’s advanced mapping and isolation strategies, Louis’ EP simply Electrocardioverted him to restore him to sinus. Then he stopped the ablation.

As a “crutch”, he put Louis on amiodarone, the most effective but also the most toxic of the antiarrhythmic drugs.

All EPs are Not Equal―It May Take Work to Find the Right EP

I’m sorry to say, the second EP Louis went to is indeed listed in our directory of EPs. He has all the proper credentials and is a member of the Heart Rhythm Society. But all EPs are obviously not equal. (See my editorial, Huge Growth in Number of EPs Doing Catheter Ablations, But All EPs Are Not Equal.)

Don’t just go to the EP whose office is near you. Go to the best, most experienced EP you can reasonably find. I know it’s a lot of effort. But you have to work at finding the right EP for you.

Do your due diligence. Seek recommendations from your General Practitioner (GP) and from other A-Fib patients (see our Resources/Bulletin Boards for a list of online discussion groups).

If you know nurses or support staff who work in the cardiology field or in Electrophysiology (EP) labs, they can be great resources.

Don’t rely on a single online source when researching and selecting doctors. Be cautious of all doctor informational listings you find on web sites (yes, including this one).

Be prepared to travel if that’s what it takes.

Learn How to Select Your EP

On our page Finding the Right Doctor for You and your A-Fib, we take you step-by-step to finding the right EP for you and your treatment goals.

Aim to Stop Your A-Fib Episodes Not Just Control Them

You don’t have to live with Atrial Fibrillation. You don’t have to settle for a lifetime of “controlling” your Atrial Fibrillation. Don’t accept being on drugs for the rest of your life. Instead, aim for an A-Fib cure.

The Heart Rhythm Specialist

A-Fib Patients- The Goal should be to End your episodes not Control them-A-Fib.comEveryone with A-Fib should see a heart rhythm specialist, an cardiac Electrophysiologist (EP). An EP is a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical activity of the heart and in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

You want to carefully select a doctor who will partner with you to create a treatment plan—a path to finding your cure or the best outcome for you.

Finding the Right Doctor

To find the right doctor for you, start by reading our page: Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-FibWe offer you what you need to know and how to do it.

To help you in your search, we’ve also prepared a list of Questions You’ve Got to Ask for each prospective doctor. The list is designed to solicit information to help you select the best doctor for you and your type of A-Fib.

In addition, we help you interpret a doctor’s possible answers. After each question, we’ve included typical doctor responses and an analysis of what those responses may mean to you.

Questions to Ask Doctors Worksheet

We’ve prepared a print version of this list of questions with our handy Questions to Ask Doctors Worksheet. Print and use for each doctor interview to collect the doctor’s answers. There’s space for your own questions, too. (Read more about our worksheet.)

Seek Your Cure at A-Fib.comLeaving the Patient in A-Fib—No! No! No!

The goal of today’s A-Fib treatment guidelines is to get A-Fib patients back into normal sinus rhythm (NSR). Don’t let your doctor leave you in A-Fib. Unless too feeble, there’s no good reason to just leave someone in A-Fib. (Read more.)

Start with finding the right doctor for you. Then, learn your treatment options. And always Aim for a Cure!

Looking for the Best Doctor, Online Ratings are Unlikely to be Much Help

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, nearly 60 percent of patients say they like to use online reviews when searching for a physician.

As healthcare consumers, you need to know about the limitations of each of these kinds of sites.

“Consumers should be careful about giving them too much credence, whether they are comments or starred assessments”, says Dr. Mark W. Friedberg, director of the Boston office of the RAND Corporation and one of the co-authors of a study that analyzed ProPublica’s surgeon website. ProPublica is one of a wide range of doctor rating sites available to consumers online.

Keep in mind is that there’s no way of knowing who’s posting many online doctor reviews…it could be Russian bots.

Some websites, like ProPublica, post objective medical performance measures. Other websites like HealthgradesVitals, and Yelp post star ratings and comments written by patients.

Keep in mind that there’s no way of knowing who’s posting many online doctor reviews or what motivated the reviewer to write about the physician.

Dr. Friedberg warns, “You never know who’s writing these. It could be the doctor, or his friends and family members. It could be a patient who had an unusually good or bad experience…it could be Russian bots. It’s the Wild West. Buyer beware.”

Research Results: Online Physician Ratings Unlikely to be Much Help

Looking for the best doctor, online ratings are unlikely to be much help according to researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. They compared reviews of 78 of the medical center’s specialists on five popular ratings sites with a set of internal quality measures and found there was essentially no correlation.

“There was little correlation between performance metrics and how patients assessed them on the websites.”

The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, compared measures developed by Cedars-Sinai with users’ ratings on five sites: Healthgrades, Yelp, Vitals, RateMDs and UCompareHealthCare. Cedars-Sinai’s internal performance metrics include reviews from doctors’ colleagues and administrators, how often patients are readmitted, how long they remain in the hospital, and adherence to practice guidelines.

According to the study, there was little correlation between the doctors’ performance scores and how their patients assessed them on the websites.

‘Pay-to-Play’ Doctor Listings Common

Furthermore, paying to be listed in a doctor referral service is common among online directories. In addition, doctors can pay extra to be listed first in your database search results.

Doctors can pay to be in your search results

The article ABC News Investigates Top Doctor Awards: Are They Always Well Deserved?’ includes a warning:

“Don’t be confused by sound-alike websites like ‘TopDocs.com’. ‘TopDocs.com’ does not claim to rank doctors in any way. In fact, regardless of true top doctor status, a spot at TopDocs.com is available to any physician who pays for membership. The cost to buy a spot on the TopDocs.com website ranges anywhere from $1,500 to $10,000, in addition to an annual fee of $1,600.”

Don’t fall prey to hype, advertising, or third parties that have something to gain by recommending a particular healthcare provider.

Are Consumer Ratings of Doctors Any Better?

Some people believe that patient ratings are the best source of information on doctors. Unfortunately, that is a misguided assumption. Patients may be able to rate a doctor’s “bedside manner,” but they know little about the complexity of medical care.

In fact, an article in Forbes magazine stated:

“The current system might just kill you. Many doctors, in order to get high ratings (and a higher salary), over-prescribe and over-test, just to “satisfy” patients who probably aren‘t qualified to judge their care. And there’s a financial cost, as flawed patient survey methods and the decisions they induce, produce billions more in waste.”

What Patients Need to Know

Some web sites for A-Fib patients may be biased, often for financial gain. When searching online for any health-related information, always ask yourself:

“Who is paying for this website, and what is their agenda?”

When searching for any doctor, especially a cardiologist or electrophysiologist, do not rely entirely on doctor ratings or doctor referral sites in isolation.

Instead, get personal referrals. If you know nurses or staff who work in the cardiology field, they can be great resources. Ask for referrals from other A-Fib patients.

Refer to our A-Fib.com Directory of Doctors and Medical Centers who treat A-Fib patients. Then do your own research on each doctor. For guidance, see our page: Finding the Right Doctor for You.

At A-Fib.com, we accept no fee, benefit or value of any kind to be listed in our Directory of Doctors and Medical Centers. A-Fib.com is not affiliated with any practice, medical center or physician.

Caution - when searching A-Fib websites always ask: who is paying for this site and what is their agenda?

A word to the wise…

At Medical Centers: Why to Always Ask for a Specific EP

In talking with A-Fib patients, I’ve found a disturbing trend when they seek an Electrophysiologist (EP) at a medical center when they don’t have the name of a specific doctor.

Often the medical center’s office will assign the newest and/or least experienced EP on staff.

Not good. Instead, you want an experienced EP with a high success rate at getting A-Fib patients back into normal rhythm. (You deserve nothing less.)

Your Search for the Right EP

First, seek recommendations from your General Practitioner (GP) or cardiologist. If you know nurses or staff who work in the cardiology field, they can be great resources. Ask for referrals from other A-Fib patients.

Begin your own research with our page, Find the Right Doctor for You. Then check our Directory of Doctors Treating A-Fib.

All EPs Are Not Equal

After you’ve done your research, you’ll have a list of EPs you know are more experienced in getting A-Fib patients back into normal sinus rhythm. (For example, someone with the initials FHRS after his name, and/or a ‘Castle Connolly Top Doctor’).

Then, you can contact a medical center and ask for a particular EP.

Especially when you are seeking an ablation, all EPs are not equal. Selecting the right EP isn’t like getting a haircut at SuperCuts where any stylist will do.

Choosing Your Doctor: Good Rapport & Trust are Vital for Your Health

An A-Fib.com reader, now A-Fib-free after two ablations, wrote me about an experience with one EP she had consulted:

“I checked your website’s listing of EPs and was surprised to find (name withheld) listed under (affiliation withheld).

This is the EP who told me I was definitely not a candidate for ablation and I needed to just accept the fact that I needed to stay on basic medications (atenolol and Eliquis).  

This guy is a smooth talker and tells you how he “treats his patients just like they were his family members”.  

However, when I pressed him with questions, he told me that ‘he was the one who went to medical school’. I would never recommend this EP to anyone.”

Studies of Doctor-Patient Relationships

At A-Fib.com, we stress the importance of a good doctor-patient relationship and finding the right doctor for you and your treatment goals. Don’t just go to a doctor because their office is nearby.

Indeed, recent research proves that patients do better when they have a good rapport with their doctor. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital analyzed the results of 13 high-quality studies of doctor-patient relationships.

“Patients who trust their doctors are more likely to follow their advice, ask questions and discuss how treatments are working”, according to Dr. Gerald B. Hickson of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

Doctors, in turn, may be more engaged.

Finding the Right Doctor for You

Caduceus at A-Fib.com

Which doctor?

If the first doctor you interview doesn’t meet your needs, move on the second (or third) doctor on your list, etc. Yes, I know it takes time and energy, but a good doctor-patient relationship is important. You’ll do better when you have a positive rapport with your doctor.

Research Supports It: ‘If You Don’t Like Your Doctor, Look For a New One!’

If you like, trust and respect your doctor(s), you’re more likely to accept and follow their advice. It’s intuitive, isn’t it? But now a review of studies backs it up. Developing a good relationship helps you feel comfortable asking questions and getting feedback in a give-and-take environment.

Relationship-Based Strategies Improve Patients’ Health

The more people like their doctors, the healthier they tend to be. This is what researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital found in a review study where they examined 13 research reports on this subject.

If you like, trust and respect your doctor(s), you’re more likely to accept and follow their advice.

A mega-study review looked at doctors who were trained in “relationship-based strategies” such as making eye contact, listening well, and helping patients set goals.

The results: these strategies significantly improved their patients’ health compared to control groups. Their patients achieved lower blood pressure, increased their weight loss, reduced pain and improved glucose management.

If You Don’t Like Your Doctor, Look For a New One!

If you don’t have a good rapport with your current doctors―even if they are “the best” in their field―it’s worth looking elsewhere for a new doctor.

Know When it’s Time to Fire Your Doctor

In the article, Know When it’s Time to Fire your Doctor, CNN.com Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen discusses five ways to know when it’s time to think about leaving your doctor, and the best way to do it. The highlights are:

1. When your doctor doesn’t like it when you ask questions
2. When your doctor doesn’t listen to you
3. If your doctor can’t explain your illness to you in terms you understand
4. If you feel bad when you leave your doctor’s office
5. If you feel your doctor just doesn’t like you — or if you don’t like him or her

Being the “Best in the Field” Isn’t Enough

Even if a doctor(s) is the best in their field and an expert in your condition, that may not help you if you don’t communicate well with them and don’t relate to them. If we don’t like our doctors, we’re less likely to listen to them.

Don’t Be Afraid to Fire Your Doctor

Which Doctor for Your A-Fib? The Plumber vs. The Electrician


The Plumber vs. the Electrician

“Cardiologists focus on the vascular function of the heart—think ‘plumber’. Electrologists specialize in the electrical function— think ‘electrician’.

Atrial Fibrillation is an electrical problem. Don’t hire a plumber to fix an electrical problem.”


Finding the Right Doctor for You: When diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation, you need to find the best heart rhythm specialist, a Cardiac Electrophysiologist (EP), you can afford. An EP is a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical activity of the heart and in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

See our article to learn how to find the right doctor for you and your treatment goals.

Find the Right Doctor: Steve’s Directory of Doctors & Medical Centers

Searching for electrophysiologists who treat A-Fib patients? Or looking to change doctors? We make it easier for you with our A-Fib.com Directory of Doctors and Medical Centers. (See the left menu for the Directory link)

Don’t be Fooled by Pay-to-Play Online Doctor Referral Sites

Paying to be listed in a doctor referral service is common among online directories. In addition, doctors can pay extra to be listed first in your database search results.

Don’t fall prey to hype, advertising, or third parties that have something to gain by recommending a particular healthcare provider. See my article: Don’t be Fooled by Pay-to-Play Online Doctor Referral Sites

NOTICE: Unlike some other directories on the web, at A-Fib.com we offer no preferential listings to be in the A-Fib.com Directory of Doctors & Medical Centers. We accept no fee, benefit or value of any kind for listing a specific doctor or medical center. In addition, A-Fib.com is not affiliated with any specific treatment, practice, medical center, device manufacturer or pharmaceutical company.

What Makes our Directory Unique?

We list only those cardiologists, electrophysiologists (EPs) and surgeons who treat Atrial Fibrillation patients. It’s in two parts: U.S. and international. Organized by city/state or country/region, you’ll find doctor’s names and contact information. (This evolving list is offered as a free service and convenience to A-Fib patients.)

Doctor acronyms

Doctor credentials


Tip: Refer to our page, Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib. It covers what you need to know to research and select the best doctor for you and your treatment goals. (Also, look at our article: Physician Credentials: Acronyms and What They Mean for Atrial Fibrillation Patients.

Listed in Castle Connolly ‘Top Doctors’

You may see an additional qualification after some doctor’s names: “Listed in Castle Connolly TOP DOCTORS.” Castle Connolly ‘Top Doctors’ are selected through peer nominations, extensive research and screening. Important: Just like the A-Fib.com Directory of Doctors & Medical Centers, Castle Connolly Top Doctors cannot request or pay to be listed.

Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib

Caduceus at A-Fib.com

Seek your cure!

by Steve S. Ryan, Last updated: March 24, 2018

When your family doctor first suspects you have A-Fib, they will probably send you to a cardiologist, a doctor who specializes in the heart.

The cardiologist will want to put you on different medications (called Drug Therapy) over the next six months to a year or more to see if any of these medications will stop or control your A-Fib. 

But current A-Fib medications are not very effective. They work for only about 40% of patients and frequently stop working over time. Many people can’t tolerate the bad side effects.

Know that time is of the essence in treating A-Fib. The longer you have A-Fib, the more your A-Fib may “remodel” your heart (i.e., change it physically and electrically).

“…Once the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation is made, it’s important not to spend too much time trying to keep a patient in normal rhythm with medical (drug) therapy…before referring them to catheter ablation.” Dr. Oussama Wazni, Co-Director of the Center for Atrial Fibrillation at the Cleveland Clinic.

With this information in mind, drug therapy may not be the best option for you.

 How to Start Your Search

To seek treatments beyond medications, you may need to change doctors.

Since Atrial Fibrillation is an electrical problem, you should see a Cardiac Electrophysiologist (EP)a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical activity of the heart and in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

A-Fib is an electrical problem. Patients should see an Electrophysiologist, an EP, a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical activity of the heart.

The EP’s primary concern is creating a ‘treatment plan’—an organized path to finding your A-Fib cure or best outcome.

To find the right doctor for you, seek recommendations from your General Practitioner (GP) and from other A-Fib patients (see Resources/Bulletin Boards for a list of online discussion groups).

If you know nurses or support staff who work in the cardiology field or in Electrophysiology (EP) labs, they can be great resources.

When you go to an A-Fib centers with several EPs, be aware that the office will tend to assign you to the newest, least experienced EP on staff. You should instead do your research first and ask for a particular EP you know is more experienced; for example, someone with the initials FHRS after his name or a Castle Connolly Top Doctor.

Finding a Heart Rhythm Specialist’ Online

To find a local Electrophysiologist yourself, we recommend the Heart Rhythm Society website and their feature called ‘Finding a Heart Rhythm Specialist’. ‘Check’ the box “to limit the results to Fellows of the Heart Rhythm Society (FHRS)”. (EPs with the FHRS designation have been recognized by their peers and are experienced heart rhythm professionals working in the field of electrophysiology and/or pacing).

When you type in a U.S. city and state (or country), the site gives you a list of Electrophysiologists in your area. Check for their list of specialties (not all EPs perform catheter ablations, for example; some focus on pacing/pacemakers, or clinical research, etc.). Look for additional information such as which medical insurance they accept.

 Our A-Fib.com Directory

This A-Fib.com Directory of Doctors and Facilities is an evolving list of the physicians and medical centers who treat patients with atrial fibrillation. Our directory is offered as a service and convenience to A-Fib patients.

It’s divided into sections: U.S. Doctors and Centers by state/city and International listings by country or geographic region. In addition, I’ve compiled several rosters, called  Steve’s Lists’ of doctors by specialty.

 Organize Your Research

My A-Fib records at A-Fib.com

To find the right doctor to cure your A-Fib, start your research with a notebook and a three-ring binder or a file folder. Learn Why You Need an A-Fib Notebook and 3-Ring Binder.

You need to organize the information you will be collecting: printouts of information from the internet, copies of documents from your local public library or medical center library, notes from phone calls, and answers to “interview” questions during doctor consultations.

Your 3-ring binder, or file folder is also where to collect copies of all your lab tests, notes from doctor visits, doctor correspondence, etc.

Obtain Copies of Your Medical Records, Tests, and Images

If you need to request copies of some medical records, read our article, How to Request Copies of your Medical Records. We give you three ways to request your medical records from your doctors and healthcare providers.

Later, when you are ready to interview new doctors, you will want to send each office a packet with your medical records, test results, and images or X-rays. (As a back-up, bring your three-ring binder with the originals.)

We strongly encourage you to get in the habit of keeping a copy of every test result you get in a designated three-ring binder. Don’t leave your doctor’s office or hospital without a copy of every test they perform. Or if the test result isn’t immediately available, have them mail it to you.

 Researching Doctors and Centers

Don’t rely on a single online source when researching and selecting doctors. Be cautious of all doctor informational listings you find on web sites (yes, including this one).

Doctors may be listed or appear most prominently because they pay for that privilege (but not so at A-Fib.com). Read my article, Don’t be Fooled by Pay-to-Play Online Doctor Referral Sites.

Don’t depend on websites of patient’ ratings of doctors or with patient surveys. They lend themselves to manipulation. Ratings often reflect how well-liked a doctor is, not competency. Consult several sites.

 How to Find the Information

You must do your own homework. To narrow down your list of prospective doctors you will want to scrutinize their credentials. To research each doctor, consult the internet or your local library. One or more of the following online resources may be helpful.

Credential Acronyms: For an explanation of the acronyms following a physician’s name, see Physician Credentials.

The Heart Rhythm Society ‘Find a Specialist searchable directory for a doctor’s specialties, insurance accepted, etc.;
The American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS) Directory of Board Certified Medical Specialists;
The American Board of Internal Medicine; Check a doctor’s certification;
The Cardiothoracic Surgeon’s Network Directory of Surgeons;
Vitals, an independent healthcare ratings organization; provides physician’s profile, education, awards & recognition, insurance accepted, hospital affiliations, and info on malpractice and sanctions.

 Your Consultation Appointments

Narrow down your list to the top three doctors. Now you are ready to set up a consultation appointment with each doctor. Think of this as an interview. Don’t worry, doctors are also ‘interviewing’ you to determine if they can help you. What to say:

1. You have Atrial Fibrillation, and what kind (paroxysmal, persistent or long-standing persistent);

2. You want to consult with the doctor about your treatment goals, for example, you are seeking to cure your A-Fib, not just manage it with drugs.

Note: some EPs have a “referrals only” policy, which means they won’t talk to you directly. You have to be referred by a cardiologist or a family doctor.

Send Your Medical Records Beforehand

Before your appointment, send each doctor a packet with your A-Fib-related medical records. To learn what to include in your packet of medical records, read Why You Need an A-Fib Notebook and 3-Ring Binder and Your Personal A-Fib Medical Summary.

Questions to Ask: Use Our Free Worksheet

To help you scrutinize prospective doctors, we’ve written a set of 10 interview questions to help get you started. Download the FREE PDF and save to your hard drive. Then, print a worksheet for each doctor you interview. 

Prepare and add your own list of questions for each prospective doctor.

During Your “Interview”

Never see a doctor aloneWhen you arrive at the doctors offices’, make sure they have indeed received your medical records. (As a back-up, bring your own originals from your three-ring A-Fib binder.)

Be sure you have your worksheets and list of other questions, a notepad and pen to take lots of notes.

Audio Recording: In addition, consider using an audio recorder to help you remember things. (Most doctors don’t mind, but always ask permission beforehand.) Many cell phones can be used to make a recording.

Take Along a Trusted Friend: You may want to take along a trusted friend or family member. As needed, your ‘personal advocate’ can question the doctor for you and verify your list of questions have been answered. It’s hard to be on top of your game when you feel ill and anxious. Studies show that patients immediately forget up to 80% of what’s discussed during a doctor visit, and get about half of the remainder wrong.

Afterwards, your patient advocate friend can help you evaluate the doctor’s answers, discuss anything that’s unclear and comment on the doctor’s demeanor.

Afterwards: How to Interpret the Answers You Received

Back home, study your notes about each doctor. To ‘interpret’ the doctors’ answers, see our article, “Choosing the Right Doctor: 10 Questions You’ve Got to Ask (And What Their Answers Mean)“.  We’ve included the various responses you might receive, and what each response means to you when searching for the right doctor for you and your treatment goals.

Also Assess the Doctor’s Manner and Personality

Warning - cautionYou’ll also want to assess the doctor’s manner and personality. Is this someone who will work with you? Someone who listens to how A-Fib makes you feel? Does this doctor inspire confidence? Is this someone you feel comfortable with and trust with your health care?

Your relationship with your doctor is important. See our post: ‘Do you Like’ Your Doctor, Do You ‘Connect’?…How it Affects Your Health

Rudeness, bad temper, boorish behavior, etc. from a doctor, no matter how highly recommended, should be a red flag for you. That kind of behavior is not just personally offensive but can be dangerous for your health.

Gender bias: Does he/she respect you? Women in particular should be wary of condescending behavior. ReadIt’s All In Your Mind” Her MD Said. Women in the US often don’t receive the proper diagnosis and treatment of their A-Fib.

Does the poor behavior also extend to how the doctor treats his staff? Patients of doctors “who don’t show respect for their medical staff have much higher rates of adverse effects, than patients of their more congenial colleagues,” according to Gerald B. Hickson, MD of Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

If your doctor is condescending or dismisses your concerns, you’re getting poor care. If a doctor is too busy to talk with you and answer your concerns, he’s probably too busy to take care of you properly.

But do give the doctor a break. They may be having a bad day or may have heard your questions too many times before. So say something, speak up! Or contact the patient-relations representative at the medical center. They want to know if a doctor is rude (those patients are more likely to sue!). Once a doctor’s bad behavior is called to his attention, they are likely to do better. And you’ll feel better, too.

 Evaluate the Consultations

After seeing your top three doctors, compare their answers. Did one doctor stand out?  If not, you may want to go back to your research list for number four and five on your list and set up appointments with them too.)
