"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

After Ten Years, Repeat Ablation by Dr. Kerwin at Cedars-Sinai (CryoBalloon)

Pete & Beth Nyquist his A-Fib story on A-Fib.com

Pete & Beth Nyquist

A longtime A-Fib.com reader, Pete Nyquist, recently wrote us with an update about his A-Fib:

“My first ablation 2006: Thanks to your A-Fib.com website, I found Dr. Walter Kerwin and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He did my Cryo Focal ablation in 2006, and it lasted almost 10 years without a problem.

My second ablation 2015: Recently, (September) I came out from Nashville, TN, to have Dr. Kerwin perform another procedure on me. This time it was the Cryo-Balloon. It took six hours, but Dr. Kerwin feels it was a great success. I was released on September 11, 2015 and since then feel great.

I highly recommend anyone considering having a Cryo-Balloon ablation done, to fly to Los Angeles and have Dr. Kerwin do it at Cedars-Sinai. Don’t just settle for anyone who can do an ablation. (see: All EPs Doing Abaltions Are Not Equal). Dr. Kerwin pioneered the Cryo Balloon and has devoted his entire life to curing A-Fib.

Thanks again for your A-Fib.com website and for leading me to Dr. Kerwin. I welcome emails from A-Fib.com readers.

Regards. Pete Nyquist, Nashville, TN, Ptnyquist(at)sbcglobal.net”
