Daniel A. Sohinki, MD
Dr. Sohinki completed his medical school training at the University of Iowa where he earned his MD degree. He completed his residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He completed his fellowship training in Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. While at the University of Oklahoma he also received his Master's Degree in Clinical and Translational Science. His clinical interests are Atrial fibrillation, Ventricular tachycardia, Complex SVT, Device-based therapies for arrhythmias, Risk factor management as therapy for arrhythmias, and Inherited arrhythmia syndromes. His research interests are Improving Outcomes after AF ablation, Device therapy in patients with congestive heart failure, mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis in patients with structural heart disease and VT, Mapping of complex arrhythmias, and Ablation Biophysics.

“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease”. These words from William Osler form the foundation of my philosophy for treating patients. I have always felt that, above all else, healthcare should be patient-centered. A plan of care that is not rooted in the patient’s own values, beliefs, and wishes, is not only ineffective, but runs contrary to the essence of a healthy doctor-patient relationship. I carry this ideal with me every time I step into a patient’s room. As physicians, it is crucial that we recognize that a group of patients may carry the same diagnosis, and yet each individual patient may require a very different treatment plan. The uniqueness of the individual, and the different ways in which illness and health impact peoples’ lives are part of what make the practice of medicine so nuanced, challenging, and ultimately rewarding. In addition to focusing on patient-centered care, a great physician should also be dedicated to the idea of lifelong learning. This is particularly true in cardiac electrophysiology, where a great deal is still unknown about arrhythmia mechanisms and best diagnostic and treatment strategies. In addition, the speed with which new technology is introduced to the field make a dedication to lifelong learning a prerequisite for providing excellent evidence-based cardiology and electrophysiology care. As I progress through my career, I hope to always keep these ideals at the forefront of my practice so that I may provide the best possible care to the patients whom I serve.
