teanderson,It is not possible to know who are the best doctors (those "best doctor" lists are often just paid advertisements).Philip J Gentlesk, MD, FHRS, FACC, is the EP at Sentara in Norfolk that was involved in forming the National Alliance of Integrated Afib Centers mentioned in the article above that Dave posted. (Dr. Jonathan Philpott is the surgeon there at Sentara who is president of the alliance.)I encourage those looking for electrophysiology (EP) specialists to check our Afib Services Locator at StopAfib.org (https://www.stopafib.org/find.cfm) or the directory at their medical society, the Heart Rhythm Society Those who have earned the FHRS (Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society) designation are generally the most skilled and most experienced.Mellanie
