Dr. Plunkitt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Plunkitt "A native of Freeport, Long Island, New York, I moved to Florida while in my teens. I graduated from the University of South Florida College of Medicine in 1993 and subsequently completed my Internal Medicine residency and General Cardiology fellowship at the University of South Florida affiliated hospitals and clinics in Tampa, Florida. During this time I received Board Certification in Internal Medicine. I accepted a two year fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology with the Jefferson University program at the Lankenau campus in the Mainline, Philadelphia. This intensive training experience included all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management including pharmacologic management of cardiac arrhythmias, ablation techniques, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation as well as laser lead extraction. Following my training I returned to Florida in 2001 to establish a private practice limited specifically to Cardiac Electrophysiology. I currently maintain a consultative practice with an emphasis on implantation and interventional arrhythmia management. I am Board Certified in Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiology and a member of the American Medical Association, the Heart Rhythm Society, the American College of Cardiology and the American College of Physicians. I have been recognized for my contributions in electrophysiology and awarded the prestigious designation as a Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society. I also serve on several hospital and community boards and committees and have been named as one of Gulf Shore Life Magazine's 2012 Top Doctors."
