Applying Advanced Technology With Compassion

At the Heart Rhythm Center, our goal is simple: to provide life-changing care. This requires advanced technology, but more importantly, it requires a team of medical experts to apply the technology with compassion.

Our Expertise - Our experienced professionals stay at the forefront of emerging technology. We're always ready to bring the newest technology to Deaconess.

Our Compassion -  You will quickly recognize our compassion. We listen. We patiently answer questions. We offer the comprehensive care that we would want for our family members. Of course, many of our patients are like family. Because many arrhythmia treatments, like pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), require lifelong follow-up, we get to know our patients well. We look forward to our relationship with you!

Physicians - Chandra Kumbar, MD is the Medical Director for the Heart Rhythm Center. Dr. Kumbar along with Christine Gest, MD, Ashwani K. Bedi, MD and Nathan Reed, MD  are electrophysiologists who treat patients at our facility. Electrophysiologists are cardiologists who have advanced training related to the heart's electrical system and are truly experts in their field.

Nurses - Our skilled nurses will prepare you before your procedure and assist your physician throughout the procedure. They also provide comprehensive education.

Administrative and Technical Staff - Our support staff will assist you with scheduling and some testing and education. They can answer many of your questions, so please don't hesitate to ask for their assistance.
