Do I need to search for best ablation doctor for A-flutter

I have been dianosed with Atrial Flutter. My doctor wants to do an ablation and says he has a 80 to 90 percent success rate but doesn't know exactly and he does 10 to 20 per year.  I have been told that ablations are much easier with flutter than fibrillation. Should I search the country for best (cleveland clinic, ou, mass general) or just use the doctor in Florida that has a good reputation?

I had an ablation for a-fib and a-flutter. Yes, it is true an ablation for flutter is much easier than one for a-fib. My opionion, I would still go to someone who does them on a regular basis. Weston, Fl has a wonderful doctor for ablations. Before my procedure, I traveled to several different doctors around the country before I decided who was going to do my ablation. When it comes to my heart, no matter what needs to be done, I want to have the best doctor perform the procedure that is available to me. Good Luck with your search and future ablation. Wishing you well, and wishing you enough...

I met with Dr. Natale a couple of years ago. He is very pleasant and knowledgable. He is one of the top EP's. I think you will like him alot. If you are looking into ablations, he is one of the best. Good Luck
