Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Multi-focal, frequent VPCs / not responding to usual treatment / interfering with life style - is an indication for Electro Physiological Studies (EPS) > it resembles angio – a catheter is put inside the heart / electrical activity recorded / stimulation and suppression tests are carried out / suitable medicine tested and so on. Though the test is the gold standard Though the test is the gold standard, it is INVASIVE and has a risk (though minimal) and is not generally done unless there are compelling indications. This super-speciality expert is called ELECTRO-PHYSIOLOGIST. The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation. Discuss with him.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
