Dr. Hugh G Calkins 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.<br>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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Hugh G Calkins - Posted on October 16th, 2018
I am three years post treatment with Dr Calkins. With a series of Rf ablation procedures he cured a seemingly intractable a fib and flutter condition that was debilitating. He was attentive, responsive to my needs and questions and reassuring. More important, he was committed to “getting it right” and that is what he did. Have a big problem with your heart? Get the best.
Dr. Caulkins has elevated the quality of my life.

Dr. Hugh Caulkins changed my life. He has ablated me twice - in 2002 and in 2006. My a-fib is now under control with the use of medicine to augment the operations. In the past 16 years, Dr. Caulkins has repeated shown to me his care and concern and his humanity and professionalism and basic decency. For my 2006 procedure, the JHU scheduling office screwed up. This was not Dr. Caulkins' fault. He personally reschedule and built the team to do the procedure the next day when there were no surgeries scheduled. On that team - several of the department heads at JMU. Now, I have had a terrible fall and desperately need the attention of a world class neurosurgeon. Dr. Caulkins made his colleagues aware of my situation and they have fit me into their very busy schedules. You can't place a value on that level of commitment to his patients. Thank you Dr. Caulkins. And your team is awesome as well!

Outstanding Experience With Dr Hugh Calkins
Self-verified patient of Dr. Hugh G Calkins - Posted on July 19th, 2018
Dr Caulkins is an outstanding example of what we all yearn for in modern day medicine. He will spend whatever time you need to be informed about your condition and to educate you on your options and to help make the best decision for your care. My experience with him included him sending me a 200+ page medical article which he chaired writing on my condition, Afib, and then answering many questions, and then doing my ablation at Johns Hopkins. It was by the grace of God and an “he is the best recommendation” from Dr Patrick Walsh that helped me become a patient of Dr Calkins. Best ever... my Afib is gone! Thank you Dr Calkins! Clay King
