Specialties

Dr. Paul L Ludmer 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.

Five Stars

I met Dr. Ludmer during a visit to the emergency room for unexplained pain and his care and kindness were exemplary. He took considerable time to speak with me and my family about his concerns, proposed treatment and possible outcomes. I was very impressed with his kind manner and expertise in diagnosing and explaining in lay terms the bases for his concerns.

Very well versed intelligent man

Was able to explain what was wrong with me in a few minutes very concisely. Spoke in lay terms, not medical mumbo jumbo. Realistic without being condescending.
