Piedmont Now Offering Atrial Fibrillation Program at Clinics Across Metro Atlanta
2/15/2021 ~ by Stacy Fentress
(Atlanta) – The multidisciplinary Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Program at Piedmont Healthcare provides comprehensive, high quality, and individualized care for all patients with atrial fibrillation. Starting this month, the enhanced AFib Program will be offered at 16 Piedmont Clinic locations throughout metro Atlanta.
Atrial fibrillation, commonly known as AFib, is an abnormal heart rhythm that is irregular and fast, and is the most common type of arrhythmia. According to the American Heart Association, at least 2.7 million Americans are living with AFib, which increases a person’s risk of stroke, blood clots, and heart failure. AFib also reduces the efficiency of the heart and lowers quality of life for most people.
Piedmont’s dedicated AFib specialists provide comprehensive care across all office locations. Patients can now see a Piedmont Heart Institute AFib specialist in Atlanta, Athens, Blairsville, Buckhead, Canton, Douglasville, Ellijay, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Jasper, Newnan, Perimeter (Sandy Springs), Rockdale, and Sharpsburg, or an Atlanta Heart Associates AFib specialist in Griffin, Riverdale, and Stockbridge.
“Early diagnosis and tailored treatment benefits all patients with atrial fibrillation,” said Dr. Michael Hoosien, director of the Atrial Fibrillation Program at Piedmont Heart Institute. “By offering a multidisciplinary, comprehensive atrial fibrillation program, we can maximize quality of care, and also provide highly personalized and cutting-edge treatment options for individuals with AFib.”
