Dr. Alexander S Asser has the following 1 specialty

  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

Dr. Asser gave me hope and peace of mind

I have atrial fibrillation, which increases risk of stroke. My cardiologist ordered a 30 day monitor and then brought in Dr. Asser to review the results. Dr. Asser put me on one of the new types of blood thinners, reduced my reliance on another medication, and spoke to me at length about other treatment options that he may consider as circumstances may require in the future. He gave me confidence that I am no longer just hoping for the best, but instead have options that he knows how to use if necessary. He seems very knowledgeable and has a way of talking with me that puts me at ease. I am thankful that my cardiologist turned to him for advice.

The Best Cardiologist in the area

Dr. Asser is the best doctor I have ever met. He is compassionate, informative, and takes the time to answer questions even though he is clearly quite busy. I was very anxious about undergoing a pacemaker implantation but he took the time to answer all of my concerns and he did an amazing job. My pacemaker has given me a new leash on life and his surgical skills are amazing. His staff speak the world of him both in the office and in the hospital. If you need a cardiologist I recommend him.

Best Specialist

Very knowledgeable, but one of the most personable physicians. He is warm, friendly, compassionate. He explained the entire procedure step by step. He is very concerned that all my questions were answered. I felt very "cared" for. His office nurse is very responsive if I call in with a concern. Even though I am a nurse he made sure I understood his explaination to all my questions. I felt like when he saw me in the hospital that I was his only patient...he was so relaxed and just concerned about med during that time. He does a great stich job as well.
