Specialties

Dr. Brett D Atwater has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

Brilliant

Dr Atwater has profound knowledge in electrophysiology. I have also found him compassionate and accessible. He successfully​ did a very difficult ablation procedure on me and I was very impressed with the contingency planning he did in case the procedure did not go smoothly. I feel fortunate to have him as my physician.
