I’ve been a patient of Dr. Halperin for 14 years. I have a history of A-Fib/A-Flutter & Tachycardia, which I currently keep controlled with prescription meds after two EPS/Atrisl Ablations don’t by Dr. Halperin. He is kind, encouraging, patient, very knowledgeable, great bedside manner, & not arrogant. I also see his PA, Paul Deitering, who is the same. (A prior PA would contradict Dr. Halperin’s directions to me.) I really appreciate Dr. Halperin’s pursuit in learning in order to aid patients.

He diagnosed my AFIB, and also got me started on a CPAP machine. Am feeling much better. As an aside, he suggested I might have central tremor, which I followed up with another doctor. I believe he is one of the sharpest doctors I have had.

I have the utmost respect and trust in Dr Halperin's knowledge, judgement, and experience. He is one of the best at what he does and I've trusted my life to him on several occasions. As a patient of over four years, I will let no one else touch me for difficult and risky procedures he has perfected. He listens to me, levels with me, and calls it the way he see it. I can ask no more and expect no less when dealing with Blair Halperin. Highly recommended...

My experience at the Providence Heart clinic and with Dr. Halperin and his staff was wonderful. Everyone involved struck the perfect balance between being efficient but still super friendly and attentive. Dr. Halperin was both knowledgeable and personable. Answered all of my questions and made me feel valued as a patient.
