Dr. Erol M Kosar has the following 3 specialties
- 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.
- 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.
- Cardiac Arrhythmias

I have been seeing Dr Kosar for many years for atril_fib. He was recommended to me by my regular MD to treat irregularities in the heart. Dr Kosar has given me two heart ablations-one in 2007 and the last one in 2012. Both of which were very successful . My heart just grew new pathways and technology has improved with new equipment, the reason for a second ablation. My heart went out in Ireland and I called the good doctor and he walked me through the process of how, with the medicine I had with me, to bring my heart back into sinus rhythm. Dr Kosar has saved my life with his brilliance- he also has great personal skills. YA! I give him a five star in all areas
Dr. Kozar is exceptionally knowlegable . I just started seeing him two years after losing my other dr. who I had for 30 years due to retirement and I left Cor Health and went to Dr Korzar and unlike Cor Heath it is not a factory. He takes his time and reviews. He put me on medicine for my Afib and I don't have to visit ER like I did in the past. I have complete comfidence in his treating me. His staff is outstanding and wait time is absolutely great.
