I have had three catheter ablasions. The first one worked for about a year, but afib came back. I went to a different surgeon and he told me I had atrial FLUTTER, whatever that is. And he did another ablasion. That one didn't work at all. My regular cadiologist told me there was a Dr in Altemont Springs, Dr. Sambit Mondal, who he called, "The fixer". I let him do the third ablation and when he came into the recovery room he told me the first ablation was done properly, but where the ablasion was done, three of the four areas corrected had mended themselves so he made sure they would not again. It's been three years and it's been perfect so far.

I researched EPs in the area and found Dr. Jeffrey Williams at Lakeland Regional. He was recommended to me by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. He is very knowledgeable and thorough in his evaluation of your particular condition and situation. Well worth the drive to Lakeland. Phone number (863) 687-1100, ext. 8949, talk to Sandy. You'll be glad you did.

Ablation for AFIB may or may not be the end all. Dr. Inamdar did mine a little over 3 years ago and haven't had much of a problem with my AFIB since but am still on a generic for Rythmol as a safety precaution. AFIB IS a serious condition, don't screw with it.

Dr. Inamdar. Located just outside The Villages off of 441 at the Heart and Vein Institute. Have not seen him yet – seeing him tomorrow – but highly recommended by my PCP. Impressive credentials.

My spouse has seen Dr. Hector Garcia for several years. He has AFIB himself and has been excellent. He has an office in Leesburg and an office at 1501 Hwy 441 Bldg 1000 across from the Sharon Morse building.

Oh my gosh, all of these Heart Drs. names. Don't you think all of these suggestions are just who this person like or has as a heart Dr. Of course they would say they are the best because that's who they're going to. I'm not picking on anybody for saying this Dr. is the best but

are they really the best! I know all of these Drs. probably are the best when you need someone in an emergency. If I really wanted a heart Dr. I would want to know who's the best if you had to be opened up. I know because I've had a 5 way emergency bypass myself on 11-22-12. If I had to be opened up & had time I would go to Plano, TX heart hospital. They're probably the best in the country. Out of all of these Drs. mentioned, who's the Dr. out of these?

The OP of this thread has a need for an electrophysiologist to treat AFIB. Typically, AFIB is not an emergency. Typically, the procedure is performed through a catheter - the patient is not opened up.

I'm glad you received the care you needed for the condition you experienced.
