Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Cardiac arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia.

Some of the techniques I use are catheter ablation for arrhythmia, cryoballoon atrial fibrillation ablation technique, stereotaxis (remote navigation) ablation technique, pacemaker implantation, ICD implantation, laser lead extraction, loop recorder implantation, cardioversion, lariat left atrial appendage ligation.

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

I treat my patients as I would like to be treated. I spend the necessary time to make patients understand the disease they suffer from, the rationale for treatment of the conditions and different treatment approaches.

I am part of a team with high values and quality standards. We use a team approach for most procedures in an effort to maximize the outcomes and reduce complications.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

During my first contact with a medical environment, a fractured leg while in high school, I was impressed by the dedication of the physicians and the empathy of the nurses. I was touched by the pain of the sick people. I wanted to help and make a difference in the lives of others.

Patient Ratings & Comments


Comments are gathered from our patient satisfaction surveys.

I was there to make a decision on an ablation. I was not prepared for an implant (heart monitor). This new information upset me becuase it was a surprise. After the implant procedure was discussed with me, I was given a handout to read at home.
Dr. Musat was very kind, informative, professional and confident
Outstanding [...]
all good
It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Musat. He was caring and reassuring. Explained the tests and treatment for my problem in a way I understood. I am so glad to be in his care.
