Dr. Brammer is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiac Electrophysiology.

"I'm very excited to join the team here at Augusta Health," said Dr. Brammer. "It is a wonderful hospital and great environment. Bringing my experience in electrophysiology to Augusta County is an honor for me and my family. We are setting up an arrhythmia center for patients in our area to come and experience the latest and most advanced therapies for heart rhythm disorders. This includes ablation for atrial fibrillation, pacemakers, defibrillators for prevention of sudden cardiac death and resynchronization devices for treatment of congestive heart failure."
