Dr. Edward P Gerstenfeld has the following 2 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.

About 4 years ago, Dr. G performed ablation for my husband's tachycardia. We were very scared (the process is pretty daunting to a layman). He and his associates were very caring and patient as we presented a list of questions; they allayed our fears and explained possible outcomes. The office was exceptional in communicating with us. They fit us into the schedule very quickly (about 2 weeks, but we needed that time to compile all the required info -- medical records, etc. (My husband had been to ER about 5 times in 3 weeks). They called us when there was a surgical cancellation, so he had the procedure done within a few weeks of the initial consultation. If we had gone the route his cardiologist (not Dr. G, who is an electrophysiologist) had suggested, we still would have been waiting to consult about 4 months later.Highly recommend Dr. G and his electrophysiology associates at U of P.
