After college at Harvard and medical school at UC San Diego, Dr. Natterson completed his medical residency, as well as his cardiology and electrophysiology fellowship, at UCLA. He joined Pacific Heart Institute in 1996; his practice initially focused on arrhythmia management, including catheter procedures for treatment of rhythm disturbances, as well as implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators. In 2006, he transitioned to strictly consultative cardiology, allowing greater opportunity to spend time and communicate with patients and more deeply investigate their cardiac issues.
Dr. Natterson is currently President of the medical staff at St. John’s Health Center. In addition, he is on the board of Leading Cardiologists of America, a corporation working to establish standards for private practice cardiologists nationwide.
The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.
