About

Dr. Sushmitha Patibandla, often referred to by patients as "Dr. Sush", is a double board-certified clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, specializing in irregular heart rhythm issues, known as cardiac arrhythmias. While treating all forms of arrhythmia in both male and female patients, Dr. Patibandla has a particular interest in female cardiac health.

Dr. Patibandla is particularly focused on the minimal invasive surgical management of the most common cardiac arrhythmias including Atrial Fibrillation or AFib. She specializes in an advanced curative procedure known as cardiac catheter ablation. She is one of the few electrophysiologists in the United States and around the world that use a zero-fluoroscopy approach to this procedure. This means that no x-ray radiation is used, rather employing advanced heart mapping technology and ultrasound guidance.

Clinical Interests

  • Women's Heart Health
  • Atrial fibrillation

Care philosophy

Cardiac arrhythmias can be a scary prospect for many patients. Dr. Patibandla is dedicated to educating her patients with accurate information about their condition. Typically, arrhythmia patients have a number of options for treatment and management of their condition. Dr. Patibandla believes in a stepped approach to care starting with the most conservative options.

Hobbies

  • Spending time with her kids

Ratings and comments are obtained from verified patient survey data collected on behalf of HonorHealth by a third-party vendor, Press Ganey Associates, Inc. HonorHealth uses Press Ganey’s MD satisfaction surveys to assess patients' experiences with healthcare providers and staff in our Medical Group practices. In order to support full transparency, HonorHealth ensures that the full range of patient comments, both positive and negative, are published.

Star ratings are displayed only for those physicians who participate in HonorHealth’s patient experience survey program through Press Ganey and have received a minimum of 30 surveys responses.

Despite the drive toward full transparency, occasionally some comments cannot be published because they jeopardize the patient’s privacy, contain vulgar or offensive language, or contain libelous or defamatory content. In these rare instances, comment exclusion based on a strict set of exclusion criteria may be appropriate.
