Rodrigo C. Chan, MD, F.A.C.C.
Dr. Chan is respected for his work in electrophysiology and his passion for advancing heart disease treatment. He has several notable publications and has participated in major clinical trials involving catheter ablations and device implantation.
Dr. Chan is known for first implanting the smallest cardiac defibrillator. A frequent national lecturer, he has made numerous presentations to the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiologists.
He specializes in cardiac electrophysiology, including heart rhythm assessment and diagnostics, pacemaker and implantable cardiac defibrillator implantation and management, electrical cardioversion and radiofrequency ablation.
He trained at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine where he completed his Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiovascular Medicine fellowships.He is board certified in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Medicine and Internal Medicine.
Andrew J. Kaplan, MD
Dr. Kaplan was the first person in the world to implant a defibrillator with a new algorithm designed to try to achieve more accurate detection of impending heart failure. The device represents the way evolving technology can predict and potentially prevent life-threatening cardiovascular incidents.
He is board certified in Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.
Dr. Kaplan completed his Internal Medicine residency at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. and did a Cardiovascular and Electrophysiology fellowship at the Emory University School of Medicine, also serving as Chief Resident in Internal Medicine at the Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.
In addition to being selected as Congressional Physician of the Year, Dr. Kaplan has received recognition as a “Top Doc” by Phoenix Magazine.
Arun K. Kolli, MD, F.A.C.C.
Dr. Kolli practices cardiac electrophysiology with special interest in cardiac ablation procedures including the latest techniques for ablation of atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia and cryoablation. He is also proficient in all the latest techniques in device implantation including biventricular defibrillators and latest pacemakers.
He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and is board certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and Internal Medicine. He completed his advanced fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Brown University/Rhode Island Hospital and his General Cardiology and Internal Medicine training at the State University of New York in Syracuse.
Dr. Kolli is a member of the American College of Cardiology and Heart Rhythm Society. Among his many awards and honors, he received the prestigious Haffenreffer Fellow in Medical Sciences Award from the Brown Medical School. Dr. Kolli has extensive research experience in both general cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology.
He performed clinical research on acute coronary syndromes and has presented his findings internationally. In addition, he did a year of basic research at the world renowned Institute of Cardiovascular Research under the supervision of Dr. Jose` Jalife, the author of the textbook of cardiac electrophysiology, and has participated in cutting edge research on gene therapy in collaboration with John Hopkins University.
Kai Sung, MD
Dr. Sung has in-depth research experience regarding the pathogenesis of atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation, as well as the treatment of heart failure using biventricular devices.
He specializes in cardiac electrophysiology, with special emphasis on complex arrhythmia ablation and device implantation. In addition, Dr. Sung’s surgical expertise includes ablation for supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and ventricular tachycardia (VT), as well as the implantation of permanent pacemakers, defibrillators and biventricular resynchronization heart failure devices.
He completed his Cardiovascular Diseases fellowship and Cardiac Electrophysiology fellowship at Brown University/ Rhode Island Hospital, under the guidance of Dr. Alfred E. Buxton, a world-renowned arrhythmia specialist. Dr. Sung completed his Internal Medicine Residency at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and earned his Doctorate of Medicine from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City.
Press Ganey, a renowned research firm, ranks Dr. Sung in the top 10th percentile in the country among physicians whose patients would recommend his practice to friends and family.
