New Cardiologist/Electrophysiologist Joins Cookeville Regional
Cookeville Regional Medical Center proudly welcomes cardiologist William Wassynger, MD to its medical staff.  He will be specializing in arrhythmias and electrophysiology, a sub-specialty of cardiology that deals with the electricity of the heart and treats heart arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation or other rhythm disturbances.  He joins fellow electrophysiologist Mark Wathen, M.D. and other cardiologists at Tennessee Heart.
 
Board certified in both cardiac electrophysiology and cardiology, Dr. Wassynger comes to Cookeville with over 24 years’ experience in the field.  He previously practiced at St. Thomas Heart in Nashville and at Mercy Cardiology Associates with Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Ky. He also practiced at Wenatchee Valley Medical Center in Washington where he developed a full-service electrophysiology laboratory, the first in north central Washington.
 
He received his medical degree from Columbia University in New York in 1989. He then performed an internship and residency in internal medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham at UAB Hospital and a fellowship in cardiology and electrophysiology at Wake Forest University at Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. Over the past 24 years, he has been involved in a number of presentations and publications.
 
Dr. Wassynger will begin seeing patients on April 23 and may be reached at Tennessee Heart by calling 931-881-2039 or 888-352-8031.
