After being diagnosed with Atrial fibrillation, Dr. Vivas suggested I have an ablation. Dr. Vivas put me at ease explaing how the procedure would be performed using a cryoablation balloon. I underwent the ablation and I am completely satisfied with the results. I feel better and my symptoms are gone. I highly recommed him for his expertise. I am forever grateful to Dr. Vivas for giving me my life back.

Beware!! If you want to stay alive, don't go here..Dr Vivas provided incomplete and in accurate options to cure my Afib. after installing a Pacemaker and performing an AV node ablation one of the three leads was discovered to have came off during a post op follow up exam. Further, three attempts by him and his partner Dr Morel to properly program the pacemaker failed. I went to Dr. Baez at Cleveland Clinic who programmed it in 5 min. The lead required another operation to correct.

Dr. Vivas did a cryoablation on me in January 2016. I had on and off bouts with AF for over six months. He did the ablation and so far I haven't had any problems. I have seen him twice since leaving the hospital and his attention to my questions are answered without hesitation. He is friendly and listens. I have no problem recommending him and his staff for this procedure. Great doctor as far as I am concerned.

He is my mm's dr -& may be good he's become what the family calls the phantom doctor. My Mom's been to the hospital for an ablation twice. Now going on the 3rd time. First was OK - 2nd the nurses/staff couldn't find him so his associate handled it. This time she went into the hospital last night, still hasn't been seen & nothing's been don His associate Mora is coming in. Viva net her to Bethesda East vice West right next to her condo & then a no show. Looking for another Dr. who cares.

I have every confidence in Dr. Vivas. However he does not respond to my telephone questions if I leave a message for him to call me and his staff do not follow up to see if he's returned the call. I have had to work around this, but won't hold it against him! He is a good doctor and very pleasant to deal with.
