Dr. Shvilkin was brilliant. I had been battling atrial fibrillation for more than six months having had several remedial procedures as well as medications that did not correct it. This doctor suggested a cardio ablation and I am off all blood thinning meds and doing great almost five years later with a nice steady heartbeat! So glad I decided to have the procedure and so lucky to have had Dr. Shvilkin.
