He completely missed the boat on a forty something year old male patient with several risk factors for heart disease, who he was consulted on for chest pain. The guy should have been taken to cath lab, but he never came in all weekend to see patient, just did orders over phone. The guy had positive troponins and chest pain. He should have had cath procedure. He did a stress test which is not as accurate then sent him home. He died suddenly next day of massive heart attack. Maybe for rhythm issues he's good. Just hope he's not on call if your a patient with chest pain! There is a 12 year old child without a father due to him not going by the guidelines for people with chest pain.

I was referred to Dr. Ilvento for catheter ablation to treat paroxysmal atrial tachycardia (PAT). After 30 years with this condition, and having it get worse recently, I was becoming unable to enjoy vigorous exercise. My favorite vacations always include hiking or backpacking, and I was starting to avoid these activities.The procedure cured me, and I am getting a great deal more enjoyment out of life, knowing that I won't be hit with a PAT attack again. I am deeply grateful to this doctor for giving me this.

Dr. Ilvento and his partner Dr. Gidney performed a catheter ablation on me for a long-standing case of atrial fibrillation. Their credentials are impeccable, their attention to detail is phenomenal, they are genuinely caring warm people, and they got the job done. I couldn't be more pleased and I would not consider going anywhere else.
