Christopher Madias 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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

He really changed my life
Self-verified patient of Christopher Madias - Posted on July 7th, 2018
He was the only doctor who listen very carefully. I visited 5 doctors before Dr Madias and none of them could explain what was wrong with me. Some even told me that was all in my head and have me take medication to calm me down. I told all of them that I had the condition from childhood and still they said it is anxiety. Dr Madias listen very patient and then he said.that he believes me and that he is willing to try a procedure named ablation and try to fix my problem for good. Which it happened in short time after I visited him at his office. He found that I had a rare malformation in my heart which caused a type of thachicardy which is now gone thanks to his knowledge and his willingness to listen to his patients. Thank you Dr. Madias.
Life changing shock to the heart
Self-verified patient of Christopher Madias - Posted on August 7th, 2011
Dr. Christopher Madias gets my highest recommendation. I was admitted to Rush University Medical Center into the Cardiac Stepdown Unit with a diagnosis of atrial fibrilation. Dr. Madias took the time to completely explain the condition and options. His attitude was simply "caring." He just asked and we talked about something very important to me - my heart. But, there was nothing scary, threatening or patronizing about it. He detailed what they'd have to do to be sure the "a.fib" was defibrilated safely. That afternoon they did it. And, Dr. Madias was there in the evening, checking to see if I was okay. I was pretty emotional - it's hard to believe how wonderful a "normal" heartbeat is when you probably haven't felt it in a while. Dr. Madias seemed to understand completely and left for the night, but was right back in my room chatting the next day - making sure I was still "wonderfully normal."
