Parker Donat, heart arrhythmia patient

Hear From Our Patients

In his late 20s, Parker Donat was an active guy known for his dedicated gym routine. By age 33, he was struggling to keep up with his wife Kristi during hikes—even when she had their small son strapped to her chest. Parker couldn’t figure out why he was always “dogging it.”

In addition to feeling worn out all the time, the young dad had another strange symptom: It often felt like his heart was beating in his throat. It was so bad, he’d get light-headed and he had trouble swallowing. It wasn’t until he felt like he couldn’t breathe and went to University of Utah Health’s clinic in Farmington that he began to understand what was going on.
