Probably one of the worst cardiologist around Traverse City and I know many cardiologists. I had an a-fib and he did multiple cardioversions which involved stopping the heart rate on Friday and spending the weekend in the hospital. He did this 3 times without success. I did my own research and found that a cardiac ablation procedure would solve the a-fib problem. He refused to recommend doing the ablation and insisted on doing more cardio version procedures. I refused and went to Cleveland Clinic and they immediately did the the cardiac ablation and the a-fib was corrected. It’s been 6 years since this experience and leaving Dr.Jaffe’s office and going to the Cleveland Clinic was the best decision of my life. I haven’t had a-fib since the ablation procedure. I have also talked to other former Jaffe patients and found similar experiences. One person he did the cardioversion procedure 7 times at a considerable expense of time and money.
