Atrial Fibrillation Clinic
Located within the Advanced Heart and Vascular Center at Riverside Methodist Hospital
The OhioHealth Atrial Fibrillation Clinic cares for patients experiencing acute episodes of AFib that require immediate evaluation or support. It is intended to reduce unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations.
The regular rhythm of your heart beat is guided by a complex system of natural electrical impulses. When that system doesn’t work properly, it can put you at risk for heart attack, stroke and cardiac arrest.
At the OhioHealth Atrial Fibrillation Clinic, our providers are experts at identifying and correcting heart rhythm disorders like atrial fibrillation. We help you take charge of your AFib to improve your quality of life and put your mind at ease. Through lifestyle management, medication and outpatient procedures, we can give you the continuing support you need to live a healthy life.
