Specialties

Dr. Robert F Hanich 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.

Great Doctor

I was given Dr. Hanich as a cardiologist after an unrelated hospital stay. I have been seeing him for over 5 yrs. and couldn't be more pleased. He is no nonsense and very helpful. He is cautious, conservative, and thoughtful in his approach to medical care. He always tries the least invasive route first. He is honest about potential risks and procedure success rates, and only suggests processes and procedures that he himself would undertake if needed. He was instrumental in saving a friend's life and I am very impressed with his skill set.

Dr.Hanich is, in my opinion, a phenomenal physician. He is has a no-nonsense attitude, and manages to be brief and to the point while still personalizing each visit enough so as not to seem dehumanizing. He seems extremely intelligent, and I get the sense that he genuinely cares for his patients. If you are looking for someone to hold your hand for an hour and talk to you about your dog, your cousin Nancy's new hair color, and the fantastic new yoga instructor in town he might not be your guy; but if you want a really thorough, efficient, and caring (albeit short spoken) physician- you found one. Also worth noting, in a world of high-cost, high-profit, and often unnecessary medical procedures and tests, Dr.Hanich seems to take the least invasive route that is safely possible. That might mean suggesting simple diet and exercise changes for a brief time period prior to medication, surgical options, or even diagnosis, but it is amazing how much of a difference a little fluid shifting can make on an ekg.

didn't take time with me

Dr Hanich did not take time to read over my records and told me I did not have POTS syndrome, but recommended I uptake my salt and fluids. This is what any POTS patient is advised. If I did not have it why would a cardiologist recommend more salt in my diet??? He did not want to spend any time with me or answer any questions. He just brushed off anything I had to say. I was diagnosed with POTS by a neurologist with a tilt table test in which my B/P dropped to 80/40 and my heart rate was 167. If that isn't POTS I don't know what is. If he had taken the time to read my records he would have seen the results. He recommended I come back in 3 months and see him. Why would anyone come back after being told you have nothing wrong with you? I did not like this doctor and would not recommend him.
