This week, Curt Schilling, who was a pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1992-2000, sent out a tweet congratulating his daughter for being accepted to college where she'll play softball. In addition to some fun and innocuous responses, he received some vile and unacceptable ones aimed at his daughter. He fought back. Of the remarks, he said "is this even remotely ok? In ANY world? At ANY time?" He then found out who the offenders were and made sure that their names would forever be part of Twitter lore, in the worst possible way. Now, the entire world knows their names and always will. So, I have to ask the person that wrote this last review of Dr. Berger the very same question. "in what world or time is it ok to publish an untrue and libelous rant against an honest gentleman (who is also my friend) and also against one of Philadelphia's most well-respected medical professionals?" While the subject matter is different than what Schilling and his daughter had to read, the offense committed by the reviewer below is just as unethical, incomprehensible, and cowardly. While social media and the internet, in general, have lowered the barrier to entry for publishing (a good thing), inherent in it is the potential for anonymity and cowardice. I am old enough to remember a time when people addressed an issue in-person, face-to-face. It was just the "self-respecting thing to do," as we were taught. As Curt Schilling said, "The world we live inâ¦ Man has it changed." Dr. Berger wanted to ignore the statement. People who know him did not. And do not.
Alan B commits insurance FRAUD , would not recommend !!!! charges for uncompleted procedures
Dr. Berger is an excellent ENT Specialist
Yes, my care was excellent and very professional and thorough.
Dr. Berger is an excellent specialist. He immediately and accurately diagnosed my condition and provided the necessary treatment and prescriptions to cure my condition. He is a caring doctor willing to spend time with me to and to answer all of my questions. His office staff is excellent also. Dr. Berger has provided me with excellent care for a number of illnesses over the last 20 years.
I've been seeing Dr. Berger for several years now for various sinus issues. Four years ago Dr. Berger did a fabulous job of resectioning my sinus and alleviated problems that had been plaguing me for many years. Since then, the frequency of sinus infections has diminished greatly. When I do have the rare infection, Dr. Berger and his team are prompt at getting me an appointment and Dr. Berger knows just what regimen of treatment to prescribe to get me back in shape. I've recommended him and his practice to friends and will continue to do so.
Not only is Dr. Berger an excellent doctor... He has an amazing bedside manner as well as his staff. From day one, I felt like family. Dr. Berger performed a non invasive surgery to relieve my sinus migraines and correct my deviated septum. I am forever grateful.
Dr. Berger not only performed the surgery Flawlessly but took the time to make sure I understood everything that was going on. In addition He followed up promptly to insure I was OK. Highly recommended!
I had a deviated septum. His office was clean and the staff was extremely pleasant. I can't say enough about him.
I really enjoyed going to the Berger Henry ENT specialty Group. Everyone was very nice and Pleasant. I felt like he took his time and explained everything. Also, I feel like he does what's best for his patients.. He is also very thorough on everything. Also, the staff was very helpful on helping me get what I need. Ex. I didn't know where to go for my CT Scan . The office found which one would be easiest for me to go to and then they make the Apt for me. I highly recommend my friends and family here.
I find Dr. Berger a top notch doctor. He has been treating me and family members for close to 10 years now. The Willow Grove office is run very efficient and I feel my time is never wasted.
I am so glad I found Dr Berger, I highly recommend him. He is excellent at what he does, and the staff in the Chestnut Hill office are wonderful.
Dr. Berger is an outstanding doctor who takes the time to get to know his patients, their health history and fully evaluate how to treat their health. Dr. Berger performed a septoplasty and rhinoplasty, and I could not be more happy with the outcome of the procedure (4 months later). My nose looks wonderful, and I put myself into the hands of Dr. Berger, who cared for me and made me look wonderful! Wonderful staff as well!
Dr. Berger is an excellent physician. I enjoy seeing him and his diagnosis was spot on and he corrected my problem.
Dr. Berger is an exceptional EMT Specialist. Have been a patient for several years and received excellent care.
Dr. Berger has been my ENT Doctor for about eighteen years now. I have cholesteatoma in both of my ears and my first surgery was done by the Air Force and they just made a mess out of my ears. Dr. Berger repaired the damage and has helped to keep my ears in great shape. My daughter had sinus problems and Dr. Berger performed the surgery about 12 years ago and she has never had any problems since the surgery. Because Dr. Berger is well known there are many people seeking his advice and he can be a little short on time with you but he will answer all your questions. When it comes to surgery I hope everyone get a second opinion and get all the facts before someone puts a knife in you. You may or may not need surgery but if you do Dr. Berger is your man!
excellent doctor who made me feel secure, had surgery with him that made me all better in a day!
After 10 years plus of rarely being able to breathe out of my nose and not being able to taste food, I am cured. Dr. Alan Berger was referred to me by a past employee of Berger Henry. First off that rarely happens. One year ago I went to another ENT. Didn't feel quite comfortable and pretty much stopped the process. Best decision of my life. You don't realize how much better life can be, until two of your main senses have been restored. I will be forever grateful. Thank you Dr. Berger.
The friendly receptionist could not wash away the cold feeling of a production line from start to finish. After approximately a six minute consult, I was booked for surgery. Feeling uneasy, I went for a second opinion to find out everything Dr. Berger told me was wrong and unnessary. The second opinion doctor knew exactly who the "surgery happy" doctor was without me even mentioning his name.
The only bad thing I can say is I wish I would have went sooner to see Dr. Berger. Since going to see him about my sinus issues I have had the needed surgery to fix my problems and have been symptom free since. The staff are always friendly and courteous and work with my schedule. Dr. Berger is great and so friendly and takes time to explain things with you. Would recommend this practice over and over.
I suffered an injury in high school which resulted in a deviated septum. Over the past 6 years, the injury worsened. This resulted in poor sleep due to snoring and lack of sufficient oxygen. Dr. Berger performed a combined septoplasty/turbinectomy to correct the issue. My snoring is now non-existent, I can take full breaths through my nose, and I am sleeping better than ever. Dr. Berger is a great physician and has dramatically improved my quality of life.
It felt like an assembly line, too quick to reccomend surgery, not enough time talking about my problem.
Have been a regular patient of Dr. Alan Berger's for many years. Originally, he helped me with a radical mastoidectomy on the right side. A few additional surgeries since as well as regular debridments of the cavity have convinced me that Dr. Berger is one of the finest dosctors in the field. In addition to being a talented surgeon, he is a caring and empathetic individual providing outstanding post-op and on-going maintenance care. He listens and responds appropriately (and creatively) to current symtoms. His practice is extraordinarily well-organized. It is easy to make an appointment or coordinate a surgery with an unfailingly capable, helpful, and friendly staff. The office 'dance' is seemlessly choreographed to make everything simple for the patient end-user. I consider myself very fortunate to be under this doctor's care. With great confidence, I heartily endorse Dr. Alan Berger's ENT Specialty practice..
Dr. Berger was able to diagnose and resolve my sinus problem which had persisited for years. After exploring my options, he and his staff resolved the issue quickly and with as little discomfort as possible. Excellent care!
My experience was great from start to finish with this practice. I would highly recommended them.
Unfortunately, this doctor performed unnecessary surgery and misdiagnosed my condition. He was very short during the office visits and was extremely quick with jumping on the surgery option.
Dr(?) Berger diagnosed my mother with TMJ and ordered her to "get a bite-plate." Afterwards she had an MRI (ordered by our ophthalmologist) that found that the parotid mass found in 2006 had returned . As it is still a waiting game trying to rule out diseases such as lymphoma we remain hopeful. We are still grateful for the ophthalmologist that took the time to listen,go through her previous scans, and be an advocate for my mother. I can only imagine the poor people that trusted Dr.Berger thinking they need nothing more than a bite-plate to solve ailments to find it was something more all along. I encourage anyone that is treated by this man to go for a second opinion on whatever it is thats bothering you.
