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.
