In brief: EP are experts
If you would like a second opinion, see another ep.
Make sure to bring complete records and test results. You're already seeing the expert-level docs in this. As anesthesiologist, i would be very interested in a note from ep summarizing findings and test reports if you ever needed anesthesia services.

In brief: Usually EP docs know
Usually ep docs are right about these things, it's what they deal with on a daily basis.
If you have a normal heart function (ejection fraction > 55%) and no coronary disease, these pvcs are likely benign. Getting a second opinion is always helpful for your piece of mind.

In brief: Mult. PVCs
Electrophysiologists deal with this every day.
I guess if he feels confident you may trust him. If you still feel insecure go for the second opinion with all the pertinent documentation or tests done.

In brief: Vt
If they are multiform they are not always benign I recommend you getting a cardiac MRI
