Heart Rhythm Center Physicians
Adam E. Berman, M.D. graduated from the University Of Mississippi School Of Medicine. Following this, he completed an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C. He then completed a fellowship in Cardiology at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, where he also served as Chief Fellow. Dr. Berman then completed an advanced fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Berman is board certified in Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiology, Adult Echocardiography, and Internal Medicine. He directs the Georgia Regents Medical Center Arrhythmia Ablation Services Program.
His clinical interests include complex arrhythmia ablation, including ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. He also specializes in the implantation and management of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy devices for congestive heart failure. Dr. Berman is actively enrolling patients in several research protocols at both Medical Center and Duke University Medical Center. These protocols focus on echocardiography and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, as well as novel applications of electroanatomic mapping techniques.
Dr. Berman is currently accepting new patients and may be reached at 706-721-6660.
Robert Sorrentino , M.D. is a board-certified clinical cardiac electrophysiologist who is a graduate of Albany Medical College. Dr. Sorrentino trained in general internal medicine, cardiology and electrophysiology at Duke University Medical Center and was a member of the Cardiac Electrophysiology faculty there from 1991 to 2004 before becoming the Chief of the Cardiac Arrhythmia Service at the Georgia Regents Medical Center in January, 2005. Dr. Sorrentino frequently sees patients in the evaluation of fainting (syncopal) events, palpitations and arrhythmias of all types (supraventricular tachycardia, PAT, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, ventricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death). He is an expert in the diagnosis and management of these problems, whether it be medically or with device or catheter therapy. His expertise also includes the implantation and troubleshooting of cardiac rhythm management devices (pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, biventricular devices and implantable loop monitors). Dr. Sorrentino is known for having the skills for performing lead removals using laser technologies.
He was again honored by Castle-Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors for 2009 (9th edition). Dr. Sorrentino is also honored by being a Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society and of the American College of Cardiology . His goal is to bring cutting-edge technologies and therapies in cardiac electrophysiology and provide the best care to people served by the Georgia Regents Medical Center.
Dr. Sorrentino is currently accepting new patients and may be reached at 706-721-6660.
William R. Maddox, M.D. earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia. He completed his internal medicine residency, chief medicine residency, and cardiology fellowship at Georgia Regents Medical Center. He then went on to complete his clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship at the University of Alabama Birmingham.
Dr. Maddox joined the faculty in July 2012 as an assistant professor of medicine. He practices all aspects of electrophysiology, including device implantation, device extraction and complex catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, SVT and endocardial and epicardial ventricular tachycardia. He also has a special interest in stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation and specializes in surgical and minimally invasive techniques for left atrial appendage exclusion. Dr. Maddox's research interests involve emerging technologies for catheter ablation of complex arrhythmias as well as the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. He is a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society and the American College of Cardiology as well as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Society.
Dr. Maddox is currently accepting new patients and may be reached at 706-721-1750.
