Toronto CRS Recommendations

Postby joshy7778 » 30 Apr 2020, 07:49

Hello,

I have been suffering from AF problems for nearly 20 years (I can't believe this number). The last few years in particular have been very difficult for me. As I'm sure many of you can understand, this thing has taken almost complete control of my life. I believe I've tried just about everything outside of surgery and I think it is about time to seriously consider this option.

I live in Toronto, Ontario and I'd like to know if anyone can recommend specific LIS surgeons. Public and private clinics are both fine; I prioritize quality.

Thanks in advance.

I live in Toronto and my CRS worked out of Sunnybrook. He's recently retired though, so that doesn't help you. I do know that another forum member highly recommended another doctor at Michael Garron Hospital (formerly East General), Dr. Paul Bernick, and he also has very high ratings on the rate MD pages. Here is a list of the top CRS professionals in the city. https://www.ratemds.com/best-doctors/on ... ctologist/

Thanks, chachacha. I see in your signature that you've had LIS. Can I ask what your experience was like? If you have already written about this, I'd be happy with a link; I tried searching your post history but hadn't much success finding anything.
