Professional Statement
After college at Harvard and medical school at UC San Diego, Dr. Natterson completed his medical residency, as well as his cardiology and electrophysiology fellowship, at UCLA. He joined Pacific Heart Institute in 1996; his practice initially focused on arrhythmia management, including catheter procedures for treatment of rhythm disturbances, as well as implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators. In 2006, he transitioned to strictly consultative cardiology, allowing greater opportunity to spend time and communicate with patients and more deeply investigate their cardiac issues. Dr. Natterson is currently President of the medical staff at St. John’s Health Center. In addition, he is on the board of Leading Cardiologists of America, a corporation working to establish standards for private practice cardiologists nationwide.

Dr. Natterson saw me the day I called him, due to my symptoms, and between talking and tests, I spent an hour and a half in the office. Everything was carefully explained; I was given careful verbal and written follow-up instructions; I was treated with both compassion and respect -- he is by far my favorite physician.

Clerks and practitioners repeatedly can't find data in EPIC. it disappears then reappears. severely hampers quality of care as they depend on me to provide gaps in system data for visits or tests.
