Doctors & patients are saying about 'Beat Your A-Fib'...

"If I had [your book] 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”

Boston AF Symposium 2014

Summary Reports for Patients

From my perspective, both the Boston AF Symposium 2014 and the field of A-Fib feel like they’ve reached new plateaus—onward and upward! Developments in the A-Fib field signaled or presaged a new level of service of A-Fib patients, even though much work still needs to be done to translate these new developments into better treatments.

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

“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.”
