Merging knowledge and experience in cardiology and epidemiology, Dr. Berger cares for individual patients, and for the heart health of the general public as well. In March 2010, he became the quality and outcomes director for interventional cardiology.

Dr. Berger’s clinical and interventional practices focus on the management of patients with coronary-artery disease and peripheral-arterial disease (blockages in the legs, and sometimes the arms). He treats adult patients of all ages, with a special interest in geriatric cardiology. He is the Associate Director of the Lillehei Clinical Research Unit, the section of the Cardiovascular Division responsible for the conduct of clinical trials. He is also the Director of the Cardiovascular Informatics Section. Dr. Berger’s education includes an M.D. from the Jefferson Medical College (Philadelphia), medical residency at the Boston University Medical Center (now the Boston Medical Center), general- and interventional-cardiology fellowships at Georgetown University, and a combined interventional/epidemiology fellowship at Yale University. Dr. Berger is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher of public-health graduate students and physicians-in-training, and has been the recipient of a University of Minnesota Cardiology Faculty Teaching Award. He presents educational seminars to established cardiologists on national and even international levels.
