Easier referrals to the specialists at the new Atrial Fibrillation Clinic

The new Atrial Fibrillation Clinic at Norton Heart & Vascular Institute Heart Rhythm Center is accepting referrals for newly diagnosed patients, those with paroxysmal or persistent symptomatic atrial fibrillation (A-fib) and patients who are having difficulty with their current treatment.

The clinic is designed for evaluation, diagnosis and advanced treatment for A-fib.

Kent E. Morris, M.D., electrophysiologist, and Tara U. Mudd, APRN, an advanced practice provider with years of heart arrhythmia specialty care experience, will see patients at the clinic.

Newly diagnosed patients can get same-day or next-day appointments.

Our team is dedicated to working collaboratively with you to improve your patients’ quality of life, prevent recurrent admissions and improve long-term prognoses. We will work closely with you to create a care plan that keeps you as their referring clinician as a key part to their care team.
