Finest heart doctor in California, hands down the best!
in Roseville, CA |
In 2007-2008 I had a REALLY bad case of A-Fib (24/7) along with other complicating factors (HCM, treated with septal ablation, 2000). I had already had 3 different EPs attempt to cure my A-Fib with ablation 5 different times, none successfully. Then I went to Stark who gave me a 6th a-fib ablation and at long last I was cured. Maybe that was luck, but I put it down to skill. He's a delightful person and is the only EP that I fully tust anymore.
