Professional Statement
As a cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. Scott Brancato emphasizes good communication, patient participation, and collaboration when managing a patient's health care. "I am one part of a health care team that includes the patient," he says. "We all work together to do what's best for the patient's health."

In his practice, Dr. Brancato believes his most important role is to serve as an expert available to provide solutions for patients with heart rhythm disorders. "As a cardiac electrophysiologist, I enjoy helping patients understand the complexities of their heart rhythm disorders and treatment," he says.

He earned his medical degree at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and completed his internal medicine internship, residency, and cardiology fellowship at Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI. Dr. Brancato went on to complete additional medical training in clinical cardiac electrophysiology at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA.

Dr. Brancato was raised in Washington, D.C., and moved to Portland with his wife, who is a native Oregonian. He is delighted to be in the Northwest where he enjoys running, skiing and cycling.

Dr Brancato several months ago insisted that I start using a CPAP machine. I reluctantly agreed. Using the new machine has made my life better by eliminating a chronic fatigue condition I have had since about 1990.

Prefer all test parameters explained even those that are normal. Have side effects of prescribed new medications discussed in more detail. The foregoing may be the result of time limits for office visits.
