Dr. Mildred Opondo

Cardiac Electrophysiologist

I view my role in Medicine as a Physician healer. The practice of Medicine is an art as much as it is a science. It is a sacred privilege, in fact a calling to actively partake in and guide my patients and their families in their healing journey. As such I am mindfully present, compassionate, and fully involve my patients in their care.

My expertise is in Cardiac Electrophysiology. I treat heart rhythm disorders with medications as well as with procedures including catheter ablations of arrhythmias and implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators.

I find it profound that I began my journey in Medicine as a medical student in the Midwest (at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine) and despite moving about to various parts of the country for further training, came back to the Midwest to finally practice in my specialty. I, therefore, feel at home and dedicated to sharing my expertise with the community.

I was born in Nairobi, Kenya but have lived in the United States for more than two decades. I am a world traveler, a lover of nature and in my spare time, you will find me hiking or exploring a different part of the world.

Fun note: I am an avid Latin and Ballroom dancer.
