Biography

About Kenneth Mayuga, MD

Kenneth A. Mayuga, MD, is a cardiac electrophysiologist (heart rhythm specialist) in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine of the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute.

In addition to his role as a cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. Mayuga is also the Director of the Syncope Center, leading Cleveland Clinic's efforts in the evaluation and management of patients with syncope (loss of consciousness) and orthostatic intolerance (symptoms due to gravitational effects while in upright position).  These conditions include cardiac syncope (e.g. arrhythmogenic syncope), reflex syncope (e.g. vasovagal or carotid sinus syncope), orthostatic hypotension (e.g. neurogenic OH from autonomic dysfunction), postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and symptoms associated with post-COVID syndrome.  In addition to the high-level cardiac evaluations available at Cleveland Clinic, the Syncope Center also has access to a full array of specialized diagnostic modalities including Tilt Table Testing (with more than 1,000 tests done per year) using continuous beat-to-beat blood pressure monitoring and 12-lead ECG monitoring (with additional concomitant ancillary testing as needed), Active Stand Testing, invasive cardiopulmonary exercise testing, and Autonomic Function Testing (through the Neurology department) which includes Quantitative Sudomotor Axon Reflex Testing, deep breathing/Valsalva testing, and skin biopsy for nerve fiber density.  For those patients with conditions that may benefit from exercise therapy, the Syncope Center has access to high-level Cardiac Rehabilitation services at Cleveland Clinic. 

Dr. Mayuga is a recognized leader in the areas of syncope and orthostatic intolerance, with numerous scientific manuscript publications, research presentations, invitations to lecture, and invitations to be the session Moderator or session Chair at national and international medical conferences and scientific sessions.

He also holds an academic appointment in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Difficult to get appointment with this doctor

Reviewed on Feb 1, 2024

In this particular case, my PCP was able to influence the ability of scheduling an appointment within a reasonable time. However, this is typically not the case as I have been told on most occasions that 6 months is the earliest to see a doctor. In my particular case, I am dealing with a severe heart issue and timing is everything.

Dr. Mayuga was excellent during the office visit, but did not clearly explain the treatment plan and next steps. Since leaving the clinic it has been difficult to schedule appointments or to understand what the treatment plan is and how we will proceed.

Dr. Mayuga is an excellent doctor and was a tremendous help and asset to me in my health care challenge that brought me to the Cleveland Clinic. I cannot say enough good things about his medical expertise as well as his kind and caring personality. He combined the best medical skills with the best personal care. It was such a blessing to feel comfortable and well taken care of under his care. I've struggled for two years and I finally felt that the understanding of and help for my issues were in a good facility and with great medical care.

Dr. Mayuga and Dr. Sullivan worked incredibly well together in aiding me to gain some answers that had been elusive for two years and medically I had been going backwards, not forwards. The testing, appt's and labs were all well meshed to gain the insight needed to bring some diagnosis, clarity and hope for future changes when a cure comes along as well as what I can work on between now and then to aid my chronic heart issue as well. Definitely the dream team duo for me.

The care was great but what is not is follow up care. I need to see another department and can't even get an appointment at all. Was told nothing is available and I have to be put on a wait list. No idea when I will be able to be seen. My treatment plan is on hold and I have no idea when I will get the help I need to reach diagnosis. (Autonomic neurology is dept that has nothing)
