The Arrhythmia Clinic is a specialized outpatient cardiac clinic designed for the care of patients with arrhythmia or symptoms that suggest a possible arrhythmia. The clinic is staffed by cardiologists who specialize in arrhythmia management (cardiac electrophysiologists). A physician referral is required.
What to Expect
Your doctor must refer you to the clinic. When your referral is received, it is reviewed by one of the electrophysiologists on staff. Based on your particular symptoms and test results, a priority, or urgency, level is assigned. The urgency level is used to determine how quickly your appointment needs to be scheduled.
Once you have been referred, expect to receive a letter from the Arrhythmia Clinic confirming your referral. This will include an estimated waiting time for your appointment.
Contact your family doctor or cardiologist immediately if your symptoms change before your schedule appointment or if you have other concerns about your condition.
