I suffer from atherosclerosis & have had multiple surgeries by Dr Berens. Dr. Berens is amazing--kind, compassionate--also a great sense of humor. Absolutely THE VERY BEST vascular surgeon in Tucson & probably Arizona. Don't go anywhere else--even the Mayo Clinic where I went for a second opinion on my carotid--I was told to just monitor it. Well I ended up passing out in my kitchen & going to St Joseph's for surgery with Dr. Berens.

My husband was in St. Joseph's hospital for over 3 weeks. In Dr. Beren's absence, both his partners, Dr. McKeever and Dr. Compton, have continued with excellence of care. I emphasize that there has been no gaps in his care and no stone unturned. The communication amongst them is incredible. This office is truly 24/7 with medical care.
