Specialties

Dr. Richard R Mcbride has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

A Great Doctor

Dr. Mcbride performed a procedure called a Svt Heart Abilation on my heart. He was very professional in his work ethic as well as being very nice and caring and reassuring while he was doing the procedure. I give him 4 stars out of 4 and highly recommend him. Thank you.

A very satisfied patient

n May of 2010 I had a syncope (fainting) episode while visiting in Knoxville and was taken to St. Marys hospital by EMS. After days of tests, Dr. McBride just popped in and said that he had been looking at my chart and thought that he knew what the problem was, based on my description of an long-term ongoing history of shortness of breath and lightheadedness occurring when fast walk exercising with a pulse rate of about 115 bmp. He asked if he could perform an exploratory heart catherization and with his equipment brought my heart rate up to that 115 beat rate, at which time my blood pressure dropped in half (140 down to 70) IMMEDIATELY. This rapid drop in blood flow to my brain caused the fainting. He performed a heart ablation, to help control and stabilize my heart beat, while the catheter was still in place and corrected the problem with no further invasive procedures and absolutely no reoccurrence events now one year later. I believe that something more than coincidence brought us together, since I live in West Palm Beach, Florida and was just passing thru the area and was taken to his hospital strictly by chance. He is truly a knowledgeable, skilled and caring health provider, and has a great personality and bedside manner to boot.
