About Steven J Ross

My name is Steven Ross, MD, and I am a clinical assistant professor of cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology in the University of Florida Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. I am board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular diseases by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

I attended Ross University School of Medicine in Portsmouth, Dominica, West Indies, to earn my medical degree. I then came to Gainesville to attend UF for both an internship and residency, specializing in internal medicine. Subsequently, I completed fellowships in cardiovascular medicine and clinical cardiac electrophysiology at UF.

My inspiration to pursue cardiology was inspired by my father, who dealt with valvular heart disease as I grew up. Through my studies and work in the broader field of cardiology, I was drawn to electrophysiology because I found fascination with ECGs and the cardiac electrical system. My research interests include studying various approaches to sympathetic denervation and effects on arrhythmias, studying conduction system pacing and improving efficacy of atrial fibrillation ablation. I have clinical interest in the management of implantable cardiac devices and cardiac arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia and ventricular arrhythmias.

As a physician, I strive to develop a strong relationship with my patients and aim to treat people as if they were my own family member. Outside of my work, I enjoy following UF football, baseball and basketball. I also like to spend time with friends and family by hiking and being outdoors.
