FANTASTIC doctor; very thorough with explanations, choices, instructions and very much in charge; we appreciated his manner, demeanor, compassion & patience, especially since we were visiting New Orleans and not being familiar with our surroundings, would have been overwhelmed but for Dr Bernard and his colleague Smitha Neerukonda’s professionalism and impressive personal care; very highly recommended. THANKS again!!

I've seen several cardiologists and another EP doctor. It's been a trying time and Bernard is the is the only one who has been compassionate and willing to listen to my concerns. Hes very prompt to correspond through the provided email and I'm so impressed with the ability to contact my doctor and get a personal response back! He performed my EP study and even though we were not able to complete an ablation in confident this doctor knows his stuff! Hard to get appts but thats not his fault
