Specialties

Dr. Walter R Hepp has the following 2 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.

If you're stress test comes back fine he will say your okay

Be ware if your having problems and it doesn't show up on a heart monitor or stress test he will dismiss you if you complain that something is going on. My stress test showed arrhythmia im having blood preasure problems his nurse just dismissed me . Didn't like that i asked to follow up on my mirital valve regurgitation. Which was almost a year ago. This isn't a caring practice your just another number here..
