About

Bio

I have been practicing Cardiac Electrophysiology for 26 years and have implanted over 2500 devices. I have expertise in pharmacological and interventional electrophysiology. I have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of syncope (passing out spells.) I have been a principle investigator in numerous drug and device trials over the last decade in our cardiology clinical trials program. I am board certified.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Yours r very common: symptoms of PVCs and the physiology producing these sensations are quite normal. The post PVC beat will be harder because the heart has more filling time and stretches. A stretched heart muscle will contract more forcefully resulting in your symptoms. There are MANY things that can be done to help alleviate your symptoms but this is not a sufficient space to explain further. See a cardiologist.

Although there is a: role for adjustment there may be something more serious causing your symptoms. It would be a good idea to seek a second opinion from a traditional western medicine health care provider. You may need more sophisticated testing such as an MRI in order to make an accurate diagnosis and then receive the appropriate therapy.

It is unlikely: that the fan is causing you to have chest pain. Even though you are young and unlikely to have a serious problem, it would be prudent to see a health care provider for an evaluation. Make an appointment today.

I have PVCs. I tend to worry and look for information. Dr Friedlander was great about giving me information and analyzing my test results. He seems to truly care about your mental well being.
