After suffering from twelve year SVT episodes, I've decided to seek for cardiac ablation at age 70+. Dr. Berger is incredible. He combines his expertise and willingness to connect with patients. At my first visit, I was immediately at ease and confident in receiving medical care with his sincere approach and effective communication. The procedure was well-done and I've been feeling relieved with this curable treatment. Dr. Berger and his fellows are excellent. I was very impressed with Dr. Berger's outstanding quality as well as his caring.

I developed AFIB. After a lot of research into this Arrhythmia, the best hospitals, and the best Doctors for treatment (ablation), I chose John's Hopkins and specifically Dr. Berger. What a great choice. Dr. Berger, his fellows, the Anesthesiologists, and all of the nurses were excellent. They restored my quality of life. Interestingly, it took two ablations to get everything. At first i had AFIB but after that was cured I developed Tachycardia. Both ablations were done as an out-patient, were nearly painless, and I was walking 10,000 steps a day just one day after each procedure. Everyone who was involved in my treatment was great at helping me understand what was happening and what to do after treatment. A wonderful group of communicators. And all of this during the Covid Pandemic. Many Thanks to them all.

Dr Berger is fantastic. I had ablations in 2006 and 2010 for atrial bigimeny and trigemeny and he gave my my quality of life back. Seem to be headed down a different path now with a different ARR and hope can help me one more time.

I underwent ablation treatment for atrial fibrillation on September 7, 2016. Dr. Berger and his team were excellent. They explained the procedure, its risks and benefits. I have done very well and no longer take medication for the atrial fibrillation and my heart has remained in rhythm !
