Dr. Frederick Han is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Han strives to give excellent care to his patients by providing open communication and individualized treatment. He makes every effort to provide evidenced-based care while also striving to ensure patient satisfaction.

He obtained his undergraduate and medical degrees from Georgetown University. After completing his Internal Medicine residency at Georgetown University Medical Center, he completed his Cardiology fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University with Ken Ellenbogen and Mark Wood. He then completed his Cardiac Electrophysiology fellowship at the University of California San Francisco, under the direction of Melvin Scheinman, Jeff Olgin, & Ed Gerstenfeld. While at UCSF, he studied the use of left atrial appendage ligation for stroke risk reduction in atrial fibrillation patients with Nitish Badhwar and Randall Lee.

He specializes in cardiac electrophysiology, and specializes in heart rhythm disorders, ranging from slow heart rhythms to irregular heart beats to fast heart rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular arrhythmias, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation. Dr. Han also diagnoses and treats a variety of heart rhythm disorders that occur as a result of coronary artery disease, congenital heart disease, cardiac sarcoidosis, long QT syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HOCM), Brugada syndrome, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD).

Dr. Han performed the 1st left atrial appendage ligation with the LARIAT device at the University of Utah on May 22, 2013.

Dr. Han performed the 1st Watchman device impant at the University of Utah on May 17, 2016.

Dr. Han implanted the 1st subcutaneous ICD at the University of Utah on February 18, 2014.

Dr. Han has a special interest in:

1) Catheter ablation of:

- ventricular tachycardia and premature ventricular contractions

- atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter

- supraventricular tachycardia, including rare variants such as junctional tachycardia, nodofascicular and nodoventricular tachycardia, para-Hisian atrial tachycardia, and left-sided atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia.

2) Left atrial appendage closure for reducing the risk of stroke with atrial fibrillation, including catheter-based approaches (including the Watchman device and the LARIAT device) as well as surgical approach in conjunction with our Cardiothoracic Surgeons.

January 25, 2017

This was the worst Dr visit I have ever have. Did not spend very much time with the Dr, but felt like I was wasting his time. He told me he diagnosed me with something that is not applicable and that he basically didn't want to hear from me again.

December 16, 2016

Helpful as always at my visits

December 12, 2016

Dr. Han is fantastic and very caring, but he comes into the exam room and backs himself into a corner. It isn't the most welcoming approach.

November 21, 2016

Dr. Han is very impressive!!!!!

November 20, 2016

he fixed my problem!!!!

November 16, 2016

my husband is a patient of Dr. Han's and thinks he is fabulous !

November 12, 2016

My impression of Dr. Han is that he is extremely competent, but a little formal. To deal with so many people a day, for some people it is energizing, for others it is not.

October 02, 2016

Dr. Han was very informative, allowed time to ask questions, and explained things very clearly.

October 01, 2016

I needed a procedure and Dr Han fit me in as soon as possible. I am very grateful.

September 26, 2016

Han was very good, all the explanation was done by Kira, so I didn't really have questions, therefore he didn't need to spend a lot of time with me.

September 23, 2016

Excellent communication with all care providers.

September 22, 2016

Dr Han is a blessing !

September 16, 2016

Dr. Han seems to be a very competent doctor.

September 11, 2016

Dr. Han is always very thorough and willing to answer any questions or concerns we have. I trust him explicitly and feel comfortable that what he tells me and recommends are what are best for my health issues. He is one of the best doctors I have dealt with and I appreciate him very much.

September 10, 2016

I was given generalities, not specifics. Too high, not how high. Too low, not how low. No specific dangers given. Just an aggressive effort to have me accept a totally new idea.

September 03, 2016

Dr. Han is not very warmhearted considering his chosen profession. I never feel at ease or cared about.

August 21, 2016

I shared with them my personal gratitude for the expertise and knowledge they have. I am deeply thankful for the excellent care and help I have received. My health is very important to me and to have medical people that share their time and tremendous ability in my behalf is a blessing. I have felt a personal interest from them.

August 18, 2016

I saw the Dr. Han's PA primarily. I saw Dr. Han himself for maybe 3 minutes out of my entire visit toward the end, but his PA was very kind, very attentive and I was very impressed. She did a lot to help me feel at ease about things.

August 11, 2016

I thought the whole team was incredible. I had no idea that my condition can be cured. I have so much hope now.

July 14, 2016

We truly appreciate how Dr Han has helped me

July 12, 2016

Good visit and have confidence in treatment provided and in those who provided it.

June 30, 2016


June 27, 2016

Not a lot of discussion with Dr. Han. He had the information he needed to diagnose and for some reason I can totally confident that he can fix it.

June 26, 2016

Dr. Han is great. I had questions which he took the time to answer and explain. He never made me feel like he was in a hurry to get to his next patient.

May 29, 2016

dr. David Bull is very confident and a real good surgeon and dr. Han real knowledgeable surgeon and I'd like him

April 21, 2016

Dr Han and DR Cho are both very good.

February 21, 2016


February 16, 2016

Excellent Staff and very helpful. Dr. Han was top notch with everything. He is a fabulous doctor and explained everything very well.

February 07, 2016

dr han was excellent, fellow who gave ekg was not excellent

December 13, 2015

always good

December 12, 2015

I am hoping that CRT device recall and replacement surgery will be a priority, given complete heart block and complete pacemaker dependence. This is a fifth lead/generator recall (and necessary replacement, though not all recall for minimal pacer dependence is required). Dr. Han has been immediately responsive to "safety alert notification to physicians" from manufacturer and FDA and protecting his complete heart block patients with replacement options under warranty. There is much more to this patient safety history with regard to industry but he has opted to advocate for his patients. Thank you so very much. This is honor personally and professionally in the practice of electrophysiology medicine. Patients, above manufacturer relationships, fellowships, speaker bureaus and advisory capacities . Gratefully on behalf of patients, not profits. Your compassion and care for patients as human beings is so deeply appreciated.

December 08, 2015


December 05, 2015

I had some concerns regarding the after-care I received after going home form the hospital which I listed in the survey from my hospital stay. I was pretty upset especially about two items. The length of time it took them to follow-up with me after discharge and the fact it took 8 days to get my concerns answered. I spoke with Dr. Han on this visit and expressed my concerns. He apologized to me personally and I accepted that apology. I just hope in the future this does not happen to another patient. I felt relieved that he apologized. I think he is a very good doctor. He since called me personally regarding some concerns I had and I think he was sincere in his apology.

November 15, 2015

I really appreciate Dr Han 's relaxed attitude. it makes it very easy to ask questions

November 08, 2015

Very nice people

November 03, 2015

The PA was great, and I would give her Very Good ratings on all accounts. My experience with Dr. Han was not as positive. I felt embarrassed (like I had asked a stupid question) by a comment he made to one of my questions/concerns. After a few days of an afib episode, my thinking isn't always clear and I'm always a bit shaken by those episodes and would like assurances, not biting remarks.

November 01, 2015

I have already recommended Dr. Han to others.

October 21, 2015

I had numerous questions about what I could do for my condition and not once were any of those questions addressed or answered. All I was told was to do a sleep apnea study and see an endocrinologist. Then I was scheduled for a stress test. I had questions about whether or not I should be drinking caffeine, beer, wine, what I can do to help me when my heart rate drops, my blood pressure, feeling faint and dizzy, and other things, but I was drawn a diagram of the heart and how it works and told that I don't need a pacemaker and sent to do a stress test. I fell like the Dr didn't really think that I have an issue with bradycardia, so I was basically brushed off to the next Dr. for them to deal with me. I'm sorry but I know my body better than anyone and to then have someone treat me like I don't know what is going on with my body is very frustrating and a waste of my time off work as well as my money. The PA and nurse were great about asking questions, but the ball was dropped from that point. I will continue dealing with my issue the way I have been and eventually I will find a Dr that actually LISTENS to me. I was also supposed to have my results and the recommendations from the Dr sent to my regular GP and that still hasn't happened even with a follow up call on 10/19/15 requesting they fax them over. I have since been to see my GP without those records. Which didn't help him with me much.

October 08, 2015

I have recommended Dr. Han to others who have atrial fib. It is a six hour drive from Cortez, CO to SLC, but Dr. Han is worth it. We have also flown from San Antonio, TX to see him.

September 27, 2015

Dr. Han is very professional

September 24, 2015

Dr. Han and his associates are outstanding in every respect. I thank them for their care and concern.

September 13, 2015

Dr. Han didn't really seem interested in addressing other concerns I had that could be related to my heart. It was as if he based the success of my surgery and how many times I had/did not have irregular beats and that's it.

July 30, 2015

When I told Dr. Han and the assistants that I was experiencing much stress about my family who may also have inherited a genetic disorder, he said that maybe in five years we will have a documented genetic anomaly, and can be retested as they are always discovering new genes. he also told me he would let me know if he heard of any studies for people like me who are genotype -/ phenotype + for LongQTS. I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Han and the only thing that would made my visit better was if information he had asked more about my family, whether they had screenings with an EP, or did they have any symptoms similar to myself, fainting. Fainting is actually common in my family and this has contributed to my anxiety. I don't think we had discussed it recently, but I remember mentioning it to Dr. Akoum. That evening after my appointment, I went to the U of U's website and read about LQTS. Fainting is the main symptom of LQTS listed there, and I think this may have been overlooked in my case, and that is why I am so concerned about family members.

July 28, 2015

Dr. Han is a very special and wonderful doctor

July 19, 2015


May 28, 2015

Great experience

May 26, 2015

had a great experience with Dr. Han. The procedure seems to have been successful. He has a really good bedside manner. Good guy.

April 26, 2015

You people are awesome!

April 06, 2015

dr haun is awesome

March 23, 2015

Same as before. It was a great visit

March 09, 2015

Because I am an RN, I probably knew which questions to ask. I had an ablation about a year an half ago. I am still experiencing periods of A-fib. My husband and I had to ask several questions before we received an definitive answer to our questions. A good rule of thumb, would be to treat all patients as if their knowledge level is '0'. We as patients will let you know is we feel you are speaking down to us.

February 22, 2015

Overall it was a very good experience. I like Dr. Han very much and his staff was attentive. The only reason i won't be returning is that we live in Boise and the drive is just too long.

February 16, 2015

Dr. Han and his cardiology fellow were exceptional in taking sufficient time during this first visit to really listen to me, the patient, as the clinical circumstance is very complex. They were professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. Collaboration with other necessary providers on a consultative basis was immediate (Dr. John Ryan). The entire staff for both physicians were truly exceptional.

February 15, 2015

Dr. Han was extraordinary in his explanation of his recommended procedure (ablation of flutter), even drawing an easy to understand diagram of my heart and the procedure. Incredible! He also described the procedure, his expected outcome and the recovery process. Very helpful and made me feel hopeful for my improved health post-op.

February 03, 2015

great staff

February 01, 2015

Couldn't ask for a better place to go !!!

January 30, 2015

The P.A. (Sarah?) and Dr. Han were both excellent with regards to patient education and bedside manner.

January 27, 2015

No problem. Everything was satisfactory.

January 18, 2015


January 12, 2015

All people involved were well trained in listening to what I was saying..

January 12, 2015


December 27, 2014

I did'nt like the information that I may be border line high blood pressure. I have to excercise more therefore my wife and I joined the Rec Center.

December 26, 2014

Although we did address the questions I had, I felt like the provider was in a bit of a hurry to get out and get to the next patient. The provider seemed to just nod and smile a lot. He didn't actually believe that I was already doing the things he had mentioned as a way to treat my heart issue. I was just another face and another person.

December 22, 2014

Because Dr Han was so busy he clearly didn't have time to review my chart before he came into the room. He wasn't aware of his previous treatment recommendations (he didn't remember he had taken me off medication during my last visit two months ago. As a result, I don't have a high degree of confidence in his current recommendations.

December 08, 2014

The nurse practioner/phy assistant I did not have confidence in. She seemed unfamiliar with my case and my concerns. The doctor however was fantastic and took excellent care of my concerns and of me. I am very pleased with the heart failure clinic.

November 17, 2014

Dr Han is great.

November 12, 2014

other than the longer than normal wait time and the few choices for appts, it was a very good experience.

October 23, 2014

Dr. Han gave nanswers to several questions presented to him about things that have happenet lately.

October 18, 2014

Simply just "fair."

September 15, 2014

very good

August 11, 2014

Dr. Han made me feel very comfortable. He took the time to explain everything. I never felt rushed in the appointment, he took the time to answer all of my questions

August 07, 2014

PA was good, Dr was very rushed, didn't even do a physical exam

June 07, 2014

Dr.Han is very good at giving me a good experience when I visit his office. He answers my questions and as was the case on this visit got back to me to clarify some pertinent concerns I didn't address at the actual visit. He goes the extra mile. We (his patients) are blessed to have him.

April 14, 2014

Dr. Han and his staff were the best. All very pleasant, informative, concerned and professional. I would gladly recommend them.

March 30, 2014

My concerns were addressed and explanations were given to me. My experience was good.

March 17, 2014

all of the doctors were great.

February 11, 2014

Because I had so many tests done that day (very unexpected) she did not discuss any aftercare so I assumed she needed all the results before she could make that decision.

January 28, 2014

The waiting was very uncomfortable. When I finally got to see the PA and the Dr., the visit was good.

January 10, 2014

dr.Han has been getting me in for test quickly and helping me resolve my issue rather well. I am very impressed.

January 04, 2014

excellent doctor. only frustration is that I want the problem fixed ASAP. seems like its taking too long.

December 04, 2013

All of my questions were answered in an understandable manner. Whenever I need to call for clarification I always get prompt help.

November 12, 2013


October 22, 2013

This was a good first encounter. He appeared to be approachable in matters of my condition.

October 21, 2013

There was some confusion as to what procedures I was suppose to recieve. It took some time and lots of phone calls and other doctor inputs, but it was worked out with good conclusions. There was definately some confusion in the paperwork and what others thought was to be done. All was resolved and went well after that.

September 09, 2013

Dr. Han and Alex both explained things to me that my current physician had never made clear. Alex took the most complete history I have ever been asked for as pertaining to my heart problem and Dr. Han explained the course he would take when I become a regular patient.

September 03, 2013

A great experience having a nurse, a Physician's Asst., a Nurse Practitioner AND the EP! Wow, a whole team. Compared to my previous care by a sole Cardiologist this made me feel WELL taken care of.

August 28, 2013

Dr Han and PA Gouttsoul spent a great deal of time with me and my wife during our visit. They were very focused on my issues and in answering all questions we had. They offered a detail summary and follow up plan both verbal and written.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Han has been a wonderful doctor...he clearly communicates and explains everything.

July 01, 2013

He was excellent I just do not give recommendations often

May 28, 2013

Dr. Han was very thoughtful, courteous and personable.

May 28, 2013

Follow up information came quickly to have surgery set up.

April 30, 2013

very good

April 22, 2013

I am in a transition mode of moving all my doc's to the U. So things are a little crazy trying to see what everyone is supposed to do and how they will communicate.

April 12, 2013

My providers explained everything to me. and made sure i understood. they spent the time for me to understand. and no matter how many questions i asked, they answered and waited till i understood. i could tell they were very confident in their knowledge of my condition. and i could tell they truly cared about me getting better. I am very impressed with my doctors. I will travel the 3.5 hours over and over just to be safe in their care.

March 21, 2013

NP Sara Hamele had encyclopedic knowledge to answer my questions and spoke to me as one health professional to another, as did Dr Han. I can't say how much I appreciated this.

February 15, 2013

The doctor spent extra time with me until he was sure I UNDERSTOOD

December 12, 2012

dr. han is great

October 30, 2012

dr. han was great.

October 02, 2012

Dr. Han and Marouche have been great. This was the first time I had met Dr. Han, and he was great at explaining the procedure I am going to have. He made sure I didn't have any other questions and he did answer all of my questions

Academic Bio

Dr. Frederick Han’s research interests include the electrophysiologic mechanisms and pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and ventricular tachycardia. In particular, Dr. Han is interested in using novel imaging techniques for correlating the substrate of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia with their electrophysiologic mechanisms for improving the safety and efficacy of catheter ablation.

By partnering with collaborators in the Thrombosis Center as well as the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Dr. Han’s research interests also include creating a multi-disciplinary approach for reducing the risk of stroke and embolic events associated with atrial fibrillation. This includes the use of novel anticoagulant agents, as well as catheter-based approaches (including the LARIAT device used for epicardial ligation of the left atrial appendage) and surgical approaches (including the Atriclip).

Dr. Han is also interested in studying novel diagnostic maneuvers for supraventricular tachycardias. These apply to the common variants (such as atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT), atrial tachycardia, atioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT), and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW)) as well as rare variants such as junctional tachycardias, nodofascicular and nodoventricular tachycardias, para-Hisian atrial tachycardias, and left-sided atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardias.
