Good Samaritan Medical Center offers clinics every week for patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators and pacemakers. The clinic is for patients of John Wylie, MD, director of electrophysiology services for Steward Health Care. The arrhythmia clinic, located in the Brockton community, provides convenience for patients who would otherwise have to travel into Boston.
The purpose of the clinics at Good Samaritan Medical Center is to enable patients to have their implantable cardioverter defibrillators or pacemakers checked. It is important for patients to have their devices checked as they help regulate heart rhythm and can record the date, time, duration and other information about irregular heart rhythms.
