Specialties

Dr. Jodie L Hurwitz 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.

My other Doctor says she is a 'dingbat'

I really liked her personally, but she did not know what she was doing in placing my ICD. She kept tellig me she had to talk to my plastic surgeon and he wouldn't return her calls. I made an appointment with him and he said he had talked to her 3 times and that she was concerned about cutting into my cancer related tissue expanders. The thing she implanted buzzes in my chest every day, but her office says it 'is my imagination' Funny how my family and church and others hear it also!!

Thorough Professional

In less than one year I have been treated by five Electrophysiologists. All of them have excellent national and worldwide reputations. However, Dr Hurwitz is head and shoulders above the rest as far as I am concerned. She will not accept less than excellence from herself or those working with her.

She thinks HER time is precious and yours is insignificant

I had 1 appointment with Dr. Hurwitz where she made me wait TWO HOURS to see her with my clothes off in a gown & freezing exam room. She later did a cardiac procedure on me with an overnight hospital stay. I was told I would be released the following morning @ 8AM, but she didn't come see and release me till 3PM.
