As a cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. Scott Brancato emphasizes good communication, patient participation, and collaboration when managing a patient's health care. "I am one part of a health care team that includes the patient," he says. "We all work together to do what's best for the patient's health."
In his practice, Dr. Brancato believes his most important role is to serve as an expert available to provide solutions for patients with heart rhythm disorders. "As a cardiac electrophysiologist, I enjoy helping patients understand the complexities of their heart rhythm disorders and treatment," he says.
