About me

Patrick Bering, MD, is a clinical cardiologist and member of the MedStar Washington Hospital Center cardiovascular imaging team, where he is the program director for the advanced echocardiography fellowship. He is board certified in the following:

  • cardiovascular disease
  • adult echocardiography
  • cardiac magnetic resonance imaging
  • internal medicine

Dr. Bering performs a variety of imaging tests, including: transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), stress echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and thoracic magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).

He has been involved in research projects using MRI techniques to predict outcomes in cardiovascular disease and intraprocedural echocardiography for both clinical and investigational structural heart disease interventions. 


Philosophy of Care
"I strive to make meaningful differences to my patients, both from the interpretation of their cardiovascular diagnostic testing, as well as in direct care in the clinic or at the bedside. I utilize a patient-centered care model to achieve the personalized plans and outcomes based on each patient’s unique experiences, values and goals. I am humbled, privileged and overjoyed to work with the patients in our community."
