Patients with pacemakers come to the clinic on a regular schedule. During the clinic visit, patients are seen by device technologists, or a cardiologist who specializes in electrophysiology. They will make sure the pacemaker is working properly.

The Pacemaker Clinic is an outpatient clinic that provides education and follow-up for patients with implanted pacemakers to ensure safe and proper function. Pacemaker appointments are typically scheduled every six months. At each scheduled visit, your pacemaker will be checked by a device certified technologist and reviewed by a cardiologist. Pacemaker implantation and pack changes can be arranged through the clinic and are performed at St. Joseph’s in the main operating room.
