Patient Comments Read 29 Comments
In making the diagnosis, a patient's doctor will consider the severity of symptoms and whether they are new or have been going on for some time. The patient may be referred to a specialist in heart disorders (cardiologist) during this evaluation. Choice of treatment for atrial fibrillation depends on the type of AFib, the severity of symptoms, the underlying cause, and the patient's overall health. General guidelines for AFib treatment are available, but most doctors modify guidelines to best treat the individual.
