Dr Peykar saved me actually. I had a horrible bout with afib for years and been to several Drs. But it always seemed to never go away. Some das worse then others. My first ablation was not done by Dr Peykar and after gat it got worse. Then I researched and found this amazing Dr Peykar who gave me 2 more ablations and cured me. I haven’t had to see him for almost 4 years now. I’m fine thanks to him. He is the best and his staff is also amazing. Honest , very caring and very helpfull!!

Dr. Peykar has turned out to be the best choice that I could have made when I was looking for a solution to my A-fib arrhythmia problems. I hope to stay with him for follow up with monitoring my pacemaker and heart condition status. I would definitely recommend Dr. Peykar to anyone needing clinical cardiac Electrophysiology solutions to their arrhythmia condition.

Dr Peykar spent a lot of time going over all my options. I had the cryo-balloon ablation for atrial fibrillation . I feel much better. His staff Michelle and Amanda are excellent as well

Successful ablation in 2009, got in rather quickly due to cancellation I think. Long procedure but worth it, 1 minor episode that same year but no atrial fibrillation since. My cardiologist was thinking ablation before then , but had no one he liked til Dr Peykar. Main thing that sold me was when my cardio said he's the one who fixes other procedure s but his ablations work on the first try. Highly recommend him and his team (probably 10 people were in the operating room) as the best choice.

I have Afib and on my first visit with him, he never listened to my heart. He just touted the new procedures as a possible cure. Said he could do cryoplasty......an unproven, catheter based, high risk procedure, with marginal clinical outcomes. Told me to monitor my blood ox to see if I had sleep apnea. I did this. The results went to him but not to me. I was never called with the results or possible next steps. He should not be practicing medicine.

Went to Cleveland Clinic and other doctors in Sarasota for my arrhythmia including 3 ablations, Dr. Peykar was the only one who got it corrected. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Poor communicator and wishy-washy. Failed to really explain options and causes of need for sleep study and/or ablation. Did not appear to have reviewed studies at time of follow-up visit scheduled for the sole purpose of reviewing studies and developing a treatment plan. Inspires no confidence.
