Dr. Berman then completed an advanced fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Duke University Medical Center. 

Dr. Berman is board certified in Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiology, Adult Echocardiography, and Internal Medicine. He directs the Medical Center at Augusta University Arrhythmia Ablation Services Program. 

His clinical interests include complex arrhythmia ablation, including ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. He also specializes in the implantation and management of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy devices for congestive heart failure. Dr. Berman is actively enrolling patients in several research protocols at both Medical Center and Duke University Medical Center. These protocols focus on echocardiography and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, as well as novel applications of electroanatomic mapping techniques. 

Dr. Berman is currently accepting new patients.
