Patients have the opportunity to be scheduled with a cardiologist based on their condition and area of need. Dr. Verbsky is an electrophysiologist with expertise in advance ablation and rhythm diagnosis. Dr. Elliott has expertise in cardiovascular imagery and adult congenital heart disease. Dr. Zuidema focuses on cardiovascular imagery and structural heart issues. Dr. Stampehl has expertise in cardiovascular imaging and heart failure.
