Neil Sanghvi, MD Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist

 


Neil K. Sanghvi, MD joined First Coast Heart & Vascular Center in 2014. He has been recognized as a leader in the field of clinical electrophysiology and is honored to carry the distinction of being a Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society as well as a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. His current interests include improving techniques in atrial fibrillation ablation, minimally invasive closure of the left atrial appendage for stroke prevention, and management of congestive heart failure with biventricular devices. Dr. Sanghvi actively participates in national clinical research trials and has authored several papers on the topic of arrhythmia management.

I believe that each patient deserves attention, compassion, respect, and the opportunity to understand their particular ailment. I strive to provide personalized care and take pride in being able to clearly communicate with my patients. My reward is seeing a patient successfully and safely complete a procedure and witness the often immediate improvement in their quality of life.

Dr. Sanghvi began his interest with medicine early in high-school. He was accepted and attended the prestigious 7-year medical program at Boston University. From there, he returned to his home state of New Jersey where he completed medical school at Rutgers – New Jersey Medical School. Dr. Sanghvi found that he missed Boston, so he returned to Boston University for his Internal Medicine Residency. He then traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the George Washington University Cardiology Fellowship Program. He completed his Electrophysiology training at the prestigious Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City. Dr. Sanghvi practiced for 5 years in New York City before arriving in Florida.
