An electrophysiology study maps the heart’s electrical activity to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). For testing, a small tube (sheath) is inserted into a blood vessel at the neck, groin or arm, and wire electrodes are threaded to the heart.
An EEG is a noninvasive test to detect changes in the electrical activity of the brain. Performed using small electrodes attached to the scalp, EEG helps diagnose epilepsy, brain tumours and other brain disorders.
Patients’ Experience with Dr Akhavi
When choosing a doctor, it can be helpful to review other patients’ experiences. U.S. News publishes patient experience ratings from Binary Fountain, which aggregates patient reviews from over a hundred sites to compile information about 10 different patient experience metrics. These ratings are not intended as indicators of medical quality — how good a doctor is — but rather reflect patients’ feedback on factors such as good communication, clarity of instructions, etc. Patient experience ratings are issued in the context of a specific physician’s speciality, as patients tend to rate types of doctors differently.
