Do doctors see a lot of patients with ventricular tachycardia?

No. If you are a cardiologist that specializes in the electrical aspects of the heart's function (an electrophysiologist) you probably do see your fair share. For the rest of doctors ventricular tachycardia is fortunately not common enough to see that often.
Yes. We don't always recognize the problem however, see your primary provider to further evaluate.
