Bio

Dr. Zweibel oversees the Hartford HealthCare Heart and Vascular Institute's Electrophysiology program and treats patients with complex electrical heart disorders.

His areas of interest include device lead extractions and implantation of cardiac devices.

He oversees a team of six cardiac electrophysiologists along with APRNs, nurses, technicians, and office assistants to provide world class treatment for our patients with heart rhythm disorders.

He has conducted extensive research on complex electrical heart disorders. Most recently, he has been involved in studies examining different methods of how cardiac defibrillators stop fatal heart rhythms as well as a study examining if external defibrillators are useful at stopping dangerous heart problems after a heart attack.

He is board certified in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiovascular Disease with the American Board of Internal Medicine.

In 2003, he received the highest physician score worldwide on the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology certification exam, now known as the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners exam.

Prior to joining the Hartford Hospital Medical Staff in 2008, Dr. Zweibel was with Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and was the Director of Electrophysiology at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, NY.
