Specialties

Dr. Douglas L Packer has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • 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.

Patient

I saw Dr. Packer in 2007. I had not had my pacemaker checked for almost 2 years. He was great in getting me in his office even though it wasn't his office hours. He was able to fit me in between his surgery schedule and took the time to get my check done properly. His staff was very good and accommodating to helping me out. My friend who was with me at the time was ill as well and Dr. Packer took the time to take us down to the emergency room and get us in quickly so my friend could be hooked up to an IV to get fluids in him. I was very pleased with the care and concern Dr. Packer gave us.

Great Doctor, Thank you Dr. Packer!!

This doctor saved my life, and that is to put it lightly. I think that he is very professional and caring. I am happy and blessed to have him as one of my doctors. When I feel uncomfortable about a procedure I automatically have my doctor consult with Dr. Packer first. He was top notch and really caring!!
