Does anyone know of a good EP in or around Plano, TX?

Four hours south in Austin. Andrea Natale at Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute. Arguably the most skilled EP in the world.

Thank you, Carey, but that is about 8 hours south of Plano.

Are you thinking of San Antonio? That's closer to 8 hours, but Austin is about 4 hours. I've driven Austin to Plano more than once and google maps agrees. Obviously time of day matters because you'd have to navigate traffic all the way through Dallas, but I can't see it being 8 hours under any traffic conditions. And you could also fly. As I recall, it's about a 30-40 minute flight.

Personally, if you're considering an ablation I would fly halfway around the world to use him. But are you just looking for an EP to manage your afib rather than do an ablation?

Just wanted a name for a consultation — not for me. Close to Plano.

Oh, okay. That's different. smiling smiley

I can't offer any recommendations locally, but almost any board certified EP with 5+ years of experience can provide a competent consultation. In fact, I would lean toward the younger end rather than older just because they're more likely to be open to newer approaches.
