Heart disease in general and “sudden death” in particular is the “number one” killer in the western world. The purpose of this web site is to provide Cardiology and Electrophysiology information to my patients in Hebrew. I deliberately chose to develop this web site in Hebrew as there is an abundance of information in English about this subject, while in Hebrew there is so little. I hope that my Hebrew speaking patients and the public at large will enjoy and benefit from this web site.
If you are visiting in Israel from abroad, you can be assured to receive in our offices the same first class treatment as you are used to in your own home office. Dr. Fuchs was trained in the US and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Electrophysiology. Read on... for a summary of her experience in the US and Israel.
"As a Cardiologist, I do not cure hearts, but provide cure to people with a heart. My goal is not only to prolong patients’ lives but to enhance their day-to-day quality of life as well".
Dr. Fuchs is a senior physician at Assaf HaRofeh Medical Center and the director of Arrhythmia Services.
