Nayereh Pezeshkian, M.D.
Philosophy of Care
I consider the highlight of my work at UCDMC the performance of a wide variety of complex
invasive electrophysiologic (EP) procedures. Of great importance, our patients are experiencing
arrhythmia-free survival off of antiarrhythmic drugs after ablation for atrial fibrillation and
ventricular tachycardia.
Clinical Interests
Cardiac electrophysiology, the science of elucidating, diagnosing, and treating the electrical
activities of the heart. Performing a wide variety of invasive procedures including mapping and
ablation of SVT, VT, and atrial fibrillation, ; device implantation including cardiac
Research/Academic Interests
My clinical and research interests focus on ventricular tachycardia in a normal heart and sudden
cardiac death.
