Treating Abnormal Heart Rhythms & Fast Heartbeats
Dilip J. Mathew, MD, FACC, FHRS, is Board Certified in Cardiology & Cardiac Electrophysiology and has been practicing in the Tampa Bay area since 2004. He has devoted his Sarasota practice entirely to the management of heart rhythm disorders. Dr. Mathew is involved in all aspects of managing cardiac arrhythmias. Respectively, he received training in cardiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard in Boston and in cardiac electrophysiology at Lahey Clinic, Massachusetts.
Electrophysiologists, or EP doctor for short, are cardiologists who have additional education and training in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms. Cardiac EPs could also be considered “heart electricians.”

Cardiac health is an important factor, especially as we get older. Every lifestyle choice we make, at any age, plays a role in our overall cardiac condition. At Heart Rhythm Consultants, it is our goal to help our patients manage their condition, whether they suffer from arrhythmias or other irregularities with the heartbeat.
Dr. Dilip J. Mathew is an electrophysiologist serving residents of Sarasota, Venice, Tampa, Port Charlotte and Sun City Center, giving every patient the care and attention they deserve.
EP Studies & Ablation Procedures
Abnormal rhythms can range anything from very slow heart rates to very fast heart rates. Types of heart rhythm disorders could include bradycardia, tachycardia, premature heartbeats and atrial fibrillation.
Dr. Mathew performs implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators, as well as electrophysiology (EP) studies and ablations. He has a special interest in lead extraction and ablation therapies for atrial fibrillation.
Dr. Mathew has successfully performed over 4,000 of these complex ablations (one of the highest volume operators in the southeastern United States). Dr. Mathew also performed the first left atrial appendage closure procedure in West Florida and has performed the most in the southeastern United States.
Dr. Mathew is on staff at the following West Florida Hospitals:

What Our Patients Have to Say
Before [my wife and I] went to Dr. Mathew, I was struggling to deal with the medications prescribed to control my Afib. I literally couldn’t think straight on one of the medications. I just couldn’t live like that. We cannot thank Dr. Mathew enough for helping us live without fear again. He really took the time to understand how we felt through the whole process. We couldn’t ask for better patient care or outcomes.
My battle with Afib had drained my energy to the point of not being able to spend time with family and friends. [But] Dr. Mathew gave me my life back. Having such a wonderful physician and a life-changing procedure within a short drive, or maybe even walking distance for some folks, is such a blessing for our town.
I am writing once again to say thank you! I truly am so very grateful to you! I feel great and continue to tell people about the quality of your work and your dedication. May you be blessed with good health, happiness, and continued success.
My regular cardiologist suggested an alternative treatment called catheter ablation. He referred me to Dr. Mathew. I underwent this surgical option on May 30 and was released from the hospital the next day and was feeling back to normal within 10 days. Now, less than one month later, I’m back to myself at work and recently cleared to go back to exercising at the gym.
