Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, premature ventricular complexes, ventricular tachycardia, sudden cardiac arrest, syncope, heart block, and cardiac device infection or malfunction.

Procedures offered: atrial fibrillation device implantation; laser lead extraction; radiofrequency or cryo-catheter ablation, including complex ablation for ventricular tachycardia; premature ventricular complexes.

Describe some of your professional highlights.

I graduated with a bachelor of science in biomedical engineering from Northwestern University in 1998, and with a medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2003.  I completed an internal medicine residency, a cardiovascular disease fellowship, and clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship training at Boston Medical Center, the teaching hospital of the Boston University School of Medicine.  After completing my training in 2010, I stayed on as faculty at Boston Medical Center and at Boston University School of Medicine, where I started a laser lead extraction program.  My clinical interests included the management and treatment of all arrhythmias with device or catheter based therapies.  My research interests include His bundle pacing and high-density 3-dimensional electroanatomic mapping for treatment of atrial fibrillation.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

My clinical approach involves developing a therapeutic partnership with my patients to focus on their needs and symptoms while providing the highest quality and evidence-based care of arrhythmias.

Very professional and caring!

Dr. Bhatt was very understanding of my desire to leave the practice of my former cardiologist and secure the services of a Cardiologist/Electrophysiologist whom I could depend on for the quarterly transmission of my pacemaker data and follow up, if required. He was very clear in his discussion that I would require a general Cardiologist to follow me as a patient for routine cardio support. I informed Dr. Bhatt that I was not pleased with my former doctor and that I would be pleased if he could recommend a replacement within the Valley Group. He did so and also arranged an appointment with the Cardiologist. I was most appreciative of his direct action.
