MONROE - Monroe Clinic has begun implanting tiny heart monitoring devices to help diagnose patients who have fainting problems or other heart-related problems. "It looks just like a dried out pimple after it's inserted," Dr. Arif Ahmad said. Dr. Ahmad is a cardiologist and electrophysiologist at Monroe Clinic, where he has worked for about nine years.
