Ahmad Abdul-Karim, MD, FHRS

Philosophy of Care

Clinical cardiac electrophysiology is a dynamic field, The heart electrical system is complicated. I believe that it is extremely important to spend enough time with my patients and fully explain their problem in order for them to be able to formulate an informed decision. I like to be involved in all aspects of the cardiac care for my patients in order to deliver complete and comprehensive care.
