The Snyder Center for Comprehensive Atrial Fibrillation offers online physician consultations for new patients who live in the New Jersey and New York area - a convenient, secure way for patients to learn about the center's unique, evidence-based model of A-Fib treatment and management.
What are the Benefits of an Online AFib Consultation?
Snyder Center Medical Director Suneet Mittal, MD, explains how online consultations can help patients understand their AFib treatment options – and the Snyder Center’s team-based approach to care – in the comfort of their home, without having to worry about distance or other barriers to an in-person appointment.
How Does an Online AFib Consultation Work?
These virtual office visits are video chats through your smartphone, tablet or computer. You can see and speak with our doctor using real-time audio and video technology. This opportunity is presented in collaboration with SnapMD, one of the country's largest telemedicine companies.
All consultations are up to 30 minutes in length and are conducted by our Medical Director or one of his electrophysiology physician colleagues.
