I had an electrical problem with my heart. My PCP said there are only 2 places to get the issue resolved, in his opinion, the Cleveland Heart Institute OR go see Dr. Scott Garvey. I chose Dr. Garvey since he's local. He ran lots of tests and determined an Ablation needed to be performed. The first attempt to ablate corrected my runaway heart rate. I only wish I would have had him do this 5 years ago. Dr. Garvey is very professional and knowledgeable. Outstanding in his own right.
