Cardiac electrophysiologists are cardiology doctors (cardiologists) who have specialized training in the heart's electrical system. They specialize in diagnosing and treating heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias) such as atrial fibrillation.
Cardiac electrophysiologists can be board-certified through the Board of Internal Medicine, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
