Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gallinghouse "I'm an electrician for your heart. When your heart has an electrical malfunction, I correct it. The procedures I use are highly technical, but my priority is just to make your heart work the way it should. I'm not saying electrophysiology is simple. But I promise you'll understand what I'm doing and why."
