Cardiology Subspecialists at St. Mary’s

If you have a very fast, very slow or irregular heart rhythm, an electrophysiologist (EP) is the specialist you would see for care. Our EPs perform catheter ablations and implant electrical devices such as pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators.

Heart failure occurs when the heart is not pumping like it should. Your heart cannot pump enough oxygen-rich blood to all the organs in your body. Therefore, patients benefit from seeing a heart failure specialist, who is a specialty cardiologist with experience and expertise in managing symptoms and delaying the progression of the disease. When symptoms reach a certain degree of severity, our team will provide counsel on sophisticated treatments, such as a left ventricular assist device or heart transplantation, and care.
