After 28 years of constant exhaustion due to very complex rhythm issues, Dr. Calkins solved my problems with ablation, and a pacemaker/defibrillator. I just went on a 2.5 mile hike at 7000 feet and I feel wonderful! I will be forever grateful to Dr. Calkins for my new life!

Doctor Calkins and his team performed a catheter ablation on me in 2011, a procedure that cured my severe atrial fibrillation after years of misery...and failed medical interventions (including two previous ablations) in my home state. He was kind, informative, and helpful from first contact to last. But what I appreciate most, of course, is his competence. On the recommendation of a respected cardiologist, I flew from the west coast to Baltimore for the procedure. My smartest investment ever.

I had my ablation last week and am having a excellent recovery thanks to Dr Calkins expertise, kindness and caring.i trust him and his team completely.He was so kind to my son during this stressful time and kept him informed as to what was happening. I would recommend him to anyone that needs an ablation.

I came to Dr Calkins after a year plus of illness: bacterial pneumonia; never regaining energy, stamina; mental confusion, weakness, headaches; a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); and finally what my family called "the Wobblies" when I lost all strength in my limbs and frequently collapsed. Dr Calkins listened, and then HEARD the symptoms I described. He prescribed changes in my treatment which changed my life: I am now able to pursue physical therapy for strength. Thank you, Dr C

I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for 5 years now. I credit him with saving my life.....giving me my life back again. He took me from being in Afib almost 24 hours a day, to being in perfect sinus rhythm, for 3 years now. Not only is he excellent in his field, he is also a kind, caring and approachable doctor. You can't find many like that these days. I send him emails frequently thanking him for making me well again. I have the Utmost Respect for him, and TRUST him 100% with my life.

Calkins is a researcher first, physician second.

If you have ARVD/C you MUST see Dr. Calkins- the EXPERT in the United States for ARVD/C. Even if you have a great EP/cardiologist at home, see him for a consult like we did! Our EP and Cardiologist at home were extremely depressing about our new diagnosis, Dr. Calkins told us right off to look at the disease as positive as you can, and that it is HIS job to work to make sure you don't have symptoms. Now that's a great attitude!
