Owensboro Health Welcomes Dr. Stephen Moore to One Health Cardiology

For Dr. Stephen Moore, electrophysiology is a lot like following in his father’s footsteps.

It didn’t always look like that was going to be the case though.

“I was going to be a food microbiologist and my roommate was in medical school. He said I'd have a better job doing this than making sausages,” Dr. Moore said.

During medical school, Dr. Moore said he looked around for where he felt he would fit in. A brand new field of study was up and coming, where doctors would study the electrical impulses that control the heart and use electricity itself to treat and even cure heart problems.

“My dad was an electrician and I did summer jobs with him,” Dr. Moore said. “It was a new field. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

In 1992, Dr. Moore completed his fellowship in electrophysiology and he’s been doing it ever since. Working with electricity to cure heart problems might seem like something out of a mad scientist movie, he said, but it’s actually a reliable way to help people with cardiovascular problems.

“Electrophysiology is one of the things we can say we use to cure people. We ablate and eliminate arrhythmias,” Dr. Moore said. “You see a difference in their life and they have better quality of life.”

Coming to Owensboro is a return to the smaller-town way of living that he remembered growing up, Dr. Moore said.

“I was looking for a change (from the big city, but) I wanted to stay busy,” Dr. Moore said. “It just seems like it's going to be a nice fit for me. I'm laid back and like to talk to people.”

Dr. Moore said he was also very impressed with Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and its capabilities.

“When I drove up here that night I arrived, I said, “Oh my goodness.’ I took 45 minutes driving around that hospital taking pictures,” Dr. Moore said. “It's like a mini-Cleveland Clinic. It obviously took a long time and blood, sweat and tears before they built it. It's one of the most beautiful hospitals I've ever seen.”

And Dr. Moore said he’s looking forward to being part of the Owensboro community and helping people throughout the region.

“I hope to really help the community,” Dr. Moore said. “I have a very keen interest in heart failure. I thoroughly enjoy giving people better quality of life.”

Dr. Moore and his wife, who works as a malpractice attorney, have been married for 12 years. Together, they have five children. In his free time, Dr. Moore enjoys fishing and watching movies.
