Specialties

Dr. Alfonso F Prieto 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.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Just another number

My office visit was rescheduled because the doctor was going on vacation, The appt. was delayed for a month. At that follow up visit, it was determined that my heart had gone back into an irregular rhythm, and I was experiencing side effects to a medication. A new medication was prescribed. I was told that the Rx would be sent directly to the pharmacy. It never was. I called the office several times, no one responded to my calls. Three days later the pharmacy received the Rx. Furthermore, the office personel were supposed to call me the day after my appt. to schedule another f/u appt.. Here it is just over 2 wks later, they still have not called, nor have I been able to reach anyone. Although Dr. Prieto is a nice man his practice leaves much to be desired. I have recently changed cardiologists.
