Dr. Wulffhart joined Southlake Regional Health Centre in October 2001 and since then his main goal was to position Southlake in the forefront of providing excellent and comprehensive arrhythmia services including teaching and research in a community-based regional health centre. Dr. Wulffhart is currently the Chief of Cardiology, Medical Director of the Heart Rhythm Program and Director of Medical Education.
Dr. Anil Yadav, MD, FRCPC FACC FHRS, is a native of Toronto and obtained his undergraduate education and medical degree at the University of Western Ontario. Thereafter he completed Internal Medicine training at the University of Toronto and his cardiology fellowship at the University of Texas SouthWestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. He further specialized in the field of cardiac electrophysiology by completing his cardiac EP fellowship with his mentor Dr. Melvin Scheinman at the University of California, San Francisco.
Dr. Yadav was recruited thereafter by Dr. Zipes at Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. Yadav developed a large clinical cardiac electrophysiology practice and rose to the rank of Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine. He has published over 20 manuscripts, abstracts and book chapters and garnered several teaching awards at Indiana University School of Medicine. He is also fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society and was a member of the editorial board of the leading journal in cardiac EP Heart Rhythm for over a decade.
Dr. Yadav now returns to his native Toronto and is working at Pace Cardiology in affiliation with Southlake Hospital to continue expanding EP services to patients in York Region. His clinical interests include all aspects of cardiac electrophysiology including implantation and management of cardiac rhythm devices (including pacemakers, defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization devices), catheter ablation of both supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. In addition, a comprehensive cardiac EP consultative service will also be developed to serve the growing need of the region and improve access and timely delivery of cardiac care.
Dr. Plante has more than 20 years of experience in the field of coronary angioplasty. He has performed thousands of procedures and he has been a pioneer in radial artery access (artery of the wrist) for angioplasty. He has published several articles in medical journals.

Dr. Gollob’s research group studies the genetic and physiological basis of sudden death syndromes, the common arrhythmia of atrial fibrillation, and cytoskeletal or metabolic based cardiomyopathy conditions. His research laboratory has identified genes causative for sudden death and atrial fibrillation, and he has published his research in high impact journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation and Nature. He has Chaired on behalf of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society the first guideline document outlining the appropriate use of genetic testing for cardiac diseases associated with a risk of sudden death. He is currently the Chair of the National Institutes of Health funded Clinical Genome Resource Channelopathy Working Group which has led to recent publications clarifying the genetic causes of Long QT syndrome and Brugada Syndrome.
Dr. Gollob holds peer-reviewed research funding from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR).
