I'm Tom Munger. I am one of the staff electrophysiologist here at Mayo Clinic. The conditions I treat currently would revolve again around most of the heart rhythm disorders, which is where my subspecialty is. The most important thing I want patients to know about me is I will listen to them, and I will not give up on them.

My personal motto for patients would be Will Mayo's personal motto when he said in 1922, the needs of the patient come first. I think it's something that I try to live and breathe every day.
