Patient Reviews
Oct 15, 2023
My daughter had SVT and had a prior ablation at St Louis Children's Hospital. The procedure at St Louis slowed the SVT down but were not able to fix it. We were not planning on a third procedure but her heart muscle started to get weak and one of our friends told us to see Dr Ferns. Its two months since the ablation with Dr Ferns and my daughter says she has never felt better. Dr Ferns has been a blessing to our family.
