I had been suffering from Afib for months, and was referred to Dr. Lerman. He patiently and clearly explained my options (he even apologized for making me wait 20 minutes - what doctor ever does that?), and performed a successful procedure. He followed up after the procedure, a week after, a month after, and now three months after. I couldn't be happier, and he probably saved me. I think he really cared about me.

He listened carefully and then presented, in detail, the option for overcoming atrial fibrillation in the near future.

When Dr. Lerman learned my Afib had relapsed, he immediately made room on his calendar for an appointment the NEXT DAY, Friday. When he found out that I was leaving on a trip on Monday, he picked up the phone and scheduled me for a cardioversion THAT AFTERNOON. I am now back in Sinus rhythm when all I had originally requested was advice for travels.

Incredible Doctor.
