Patient Advice: You May Need to ‘Fire’ Your Current Doctor
‘I Want to Cure My A-Fib, Not Just Manage It.’
Keep in Mind: For many A-Fib patients, their best outcome came about only when they told their doctor, ‘I want to cure my A-Fib, not just manage it.’ (And, if needed, they also changed doctors.)
How to Find the Best Doctor for You
To be cured of your A-Fib, you may need to ‘fire’ your current doctor.
Seek an electrophysiologist (EP), a cardiologist who specializes in heart rhythm problems (the electrical functions of the heart). Do your research.
Look for a doctor who will partner with you to create a treatment plan—a path to finding your cure or best outcome. To learn how to make this happen, read Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib.
