Specialties

Dr. Rajiv R Handa 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.

defribrillator replacement with new lead

I am 84 and have a weak heart. Dr. Handa had the skill and strength to replace and connect new leads through small and crooked veins. I have more stamina and strength thanks to Dr. Handa and his nurse, Jill, medical practioner Laurie, and Becky from Boston Scientific. All are caring and professional people..

Best in town

I recently had a lead extraction done by Dr. Handa. Of all the doctors I have seen over the years he is the best one hands down Could have not asked for anyone better to do the surgery. Great staff, very informative, goes the extra mile for his patients.

What every specialist should be...

Dr. Handa is recommended highly. No doubt about it. He comes through with excellent care, superb bedside manner, thorough explanations, patient answers to questions, and a fantastic nursing assistant (Jill). Nothing can convince me that he isn't a Godsend to anyone with electro-cardiac problems.
