Dr. Ryan Cooley is an established fellow of the heart rhythm society (FHRS) and a highly skilled board-certified specialist in electrophysiology (all matters related to the heart’s electrical system) with more than 20 years of experience. His expertise focuses on heart rhythm disorders including atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardia, postural orthostatic tachycardia, bradycardia, ventricular arrhythmias, and the treatments for these disorders including interventional procedures such as complex cardiac ablations for arrhythmias, implantation of a pacemaker, ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator) and BIV (biventricular) devices.
Dr. Cooley has unique expertise in physiological pacing (stimulating the hearts’ electrical system to beat more naturally), having been the first implanter of a His-Bundle and Left Bundle Branch pacemaker in the state of Wisconsin. He has presented, researched, and written on a variety of topics including syncopal syndromes, ventricular arrhythmias, and atrial fibrillation ablation. Dr. Cooley has also earned numerous accolades for his quality and patient-centered care, and on multiple occasions he was named as one of Wisconsin’s “Top Doctors.”
Dr. Cooley is passionate about advocating for lifestyle choices as a means for achieving health through education and as a way to empower patients to make informed decisions regarding their care.

A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
