Dr. Mofrad has always felt at home in medicine having both a father and sister who are physicians. Cardiovascular surgery was his intended path, until an early internship during med-school when he first discovered electrophysiology and the ability to cure arrhythmias via ablation procedures. Dr. Mofrad met EP mentors throughout his internship and residency that continued to foster his curiosity and cemented his love for treating rhythm disturbances. His professional interests include ventricular tachycardia and ablation, and catheter ablation therapies for atrial fibrillation.
