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.”

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,

"Within the pages of Beat Your A-Fib, Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, provides a comprehensive guide for persons seeking to find a cure for their Atrial Fibrillation."

US Doctors Installing the Watchman Device – a List by

If you are at high risk for stroke but can’t or don’t want to take anticoagulants, your doctor may suggest closing off the Left Atrial Appendage using an FDA approved occluder such as the Boston Scientific WATCHMAN™ device.

Who’s Installing the Watchman? Boston Scientific offers a database of medical centers implanting WATCHMAN, but there may be additional medical centers in your area that are not listed here.

My Recommendations: To install your Watchman device, I highly recommend selecting an electrophysiologist (EP) that is also certified in “Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology”. The following list of EPs meet this criteria and is offered as a service to our readers.

NOTICE: Unlike some other directories we offer no preferential listings and accept no fee, benefit or value of any kind for listing a specific doctor or medical center, nor are we associated with any practice, medical center or physician.
