What People Say About Dr. Walter Kerwin, MD
Reply
After being to several doctors and twice in the hospital, no one could help my Afib. I passed out five times in five months. Thank God I found Dr. Kerwin. He gave me medicine that helped for about a year, and then I needed the cryoablation. It worked. He is kind and caring. Everyone at Cedars loved him, too.
