William B. Reichert, MD


Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Disease

Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Dr. Reichert earned his medical degree from Creighton University School of Medicine at the Phoenix, Arizona campus. He then completed both his internal medicine residency and cardiology fellowship at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Phoenix, Arizona. He finished his training in electrophysiology at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah and has since moved back to the Valley to establish a practice with Heart & Vascular Center of Arizona.

Dr. Reichert specializes in general cardiology as well as electrophysiology, the diagnosis and management of heart rhythm disorders. He performs a broad range of procedures including insertion of implantable loop recorders, pacemakers (traditional and leadless), implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs – traditional and subcutaneous), and biventricular ICDs and pacemakers. In addition to implantable devices, Dr. Reichert performs endocardial catheter ablations in treatment of abnormal heart rhythms including supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), atrial fibrillation, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW), ventricular tachycardia, and premature ventricular contractions (PVCs).

Dr. Reichert looks forward to meeting new patients and developing a personalized and comprehensive treatment strategy, whether pharmacologic or procedural, to treat their cardiovascular conditions.
