"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Wilber Su Cavanaugh Heart Center, Phoenix, AZ

"Your book [Beat Your A-Fib] is the quintessential most important guide not only for the individual experiencing atrial fibrillation and his family, but also for primary physicians, and cardiologists."

Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, nurse, blogger and author "Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness"


"Steve Ryan's summaries of the Boston A-Fib Symposium are terrific. Steve has the ability to synthesize and communicate accurately in clear and simple terms the essence of complex subjects. This is an exceptional skill and a great service to patients with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

"I love your [A-fib.com] website, Patti and Steve! An excellent resource for anybody seeking credible science on atrial fibrillation plus compelling real-life stories from others living with A-Fib. Congratulations…"

Carolyn Thomas, blogger and heart attack survivor; MyHeartSisters.org

"Steve, your website was so helpful. Thank you! After two ablations I am now A-fib free. You are a great help to a lot of people, keep up the good work."

Terry Traver, former A-Fib patient

"If you want to do some research on AF go to A-Fib.com by Steve Ryan, this site was a big help to me, and helped me be free of AF."

Roy Salmon Patient, A-Fib Free; pacemakerclub.com, Sept. 2013

Sheri Weber, Boyce, Virginia, had to get angry:

“While in the hospital, I questioned my cardio doctor about treatment options other than medication; He told me there were surgical procedures, but they had very low success rates (WRONG!). Anger and determination led me to research my options [right then] on my laptop.”  (pp. 106-109)

Daniel Doane, Sonora, California, talks about all the false info he got from doctors:

“Don’t believe your GP. I have gotten a lot of bad advice from various GPs:

Daniel D.

− ‘Just take a little digoxin and you will be fine.’
− ‘You are probably missing some micronutrient. If you buy this product I sell, it may well provide that and stop your A-Fib.’
− ‘I think that all of these tests your EP is requesting are just a waste of money.’
 (From a cardiologist) ‘Don’t worry about a little A-Fib. It won’t kill you.’ ” (pp. 152-162)

Joan Schneider, Ann Arbor, MI, found online information and support:

“Upon questioning [my new EP]…I didn’t have a warm fuzzy feeling. However, I found everything I needed to know (and even what I didn’t want to know) when I came across A-Fib.com, Stopafib.org, and the best support from the A-Fib support group.
It was a true experience of input, input, input!” (pp 119-124)
