Sometimes patients with AFib have no distinct signs or symptoms. The condition might be discovered during a physical exam or EKG (electrocardiogram).
Often, primary care doctors are the ones who find AFib. They refer patients to cardiologists and electrophysiologists (who specialize in treating arrhythmias).
