Introducing Arrhythmia Center of Florida Open to Diagnose and Treat Patients
July 30, 2012
Hudson, FL – The Arrhythmia Center of Florida (ACOF is open to diagnose and treat patients who suffer from cardiac arrhythmias. The ACOF is part of the nationally recognized Heart Institute at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point and is located in Hudson. With a state-of-the-art electrophysiology lab and full-service facility, the ACOF is able to diagnose and treat all types of arrhythmias.
An arrhythmia is when the heart’s electrical systems do not work properly and the heartbeat becomes too slow, too fast, or irregular. Symptoms of an arrhythmia may include a racing or skipping heartbeat, a mild fluttering sensation in the chest, dizziness or fainting, fatigue, difficulty breathing, and/or chest pain. Each year, over 850,000 Americans are hospitalized for an arrhythmia. “Having a local full-service facility that’s focused solely on treating arrhythmias means patients won’t have to go out of the area to receive specialized care,” said Julie Lallanilla, director of electrophysiology at RMC Bayonet Point.
The ACOF’s physicians and healthcare professionals have served patients in West Central Florida since 1995 and perform over 1,000 electrophysiology procedures annually. Medical Director Luis R. Annoni, MD leads the ACOF’s team of six board-certified electrophysiologists (cardiologists who specialize in arrhythmias). Along with Dr. Annoni, ACOF electrophysiologists include: Rajiva Goyal, MD; Raul Jimenez, MD; Huang-Ta Lin, MD; Darshan V. Patel, MD; and Kenneth H. Yamamura, MD.
“For some patients, an arrhythmia may be nothing to worry about. For others, it may be a life threatening medical condition,” said Dr. Annoni. “Anyone experiencing an arrhythmia should see a physician right away.”
The ACOF is located at 14000 Fivay Road in Hudson near the intersection of US 19 and Hudson Avenue. To learn more about cardiac arrhythmias, diagnostic procedures, and treatments, visit the ACOF website at RMCHealth.com or call 727-869-5565 or toll free at 855-534-4325.
