Dr. Margot Vloka 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.
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

I am a 3 time cardiac arrest survivor. Had hypothermia treatment and a medically induced coma performed on me. Caught pneumonia while I was in the E.R. and had an ablation done. Dr Vloka was there through it all. Yes, she is a little rough around the edges, but she knows what she is doing. I was diagnosed with Wolff Parkinson White syndrome by Dr. Vloka. Less than a month after my last day in the hospital, I am basically back to normal. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a cardiologist or electrophys biologist. Like I said, she is a little rough around the edges. That's partially due to the fact that it's hard to understand her (she's from Poland) but her nurse practitioner is there as a middle man for communication purposes. DEFINITELY would recommend her.
My 91-year-old father was seen in the hospital last month by Dr. Vloka. She and her nurse were brusque, condescending, demanding, and uncooperative. When we said we had questions about the risks of installing a pacemaker in a 91-year-old patient with a long history of infections, her nurse said, "What could you possibly have questions about? Dr. Vloka explained the procedure to you already. (which she did not) You NEED TO KNOW that your father is not the only patient in this hospital". When another cardiologist recommended no pacemaker be implanted, she lost her cool, so we "fired" her. Six weeks later, Dad is now doing fine without what might have been this invasive, unnecessary procedure.
