Corneal Cross Linking for Keratoconus

Dr Berger is one 0f a handful of Opthamologists in FL performing Corneal Cross Linking for Keratoconus. His out of pocket charge is comparatively more reasonable. Under his care, my eye is progressing positively within 6 mos. My other eye will undergo the same procedure. During my first appointment, Dr. Berger answered my numerous questions but his personality was flat,distant w/minimal patient interactivity. Within 6mos his personality is less stiff and interacts more easily. Fabulous staff!! I do suggest appt. reminder calls or text or emails to patient.

Pleasant experience

Was anxious and nervous, but the staff was helpful and the results of the surgery was very good. Dr Berger is quiet but opens up after a few visits. His work though is outstanding. Would definitely recommend him for cataract and cornea surgery.

I have been a patient of DR. Berger for over a decade and am currently his patient. He treats me for my cornea problems associated with GVHD and chronic dry eye. He has also successfully operated on me for Cataracts in both eyes. I highly recommend him. He is a cornea expert as well as an eye doctor.

Cataract, IOL and Transplant, Scleral contact

I am very thankful for finding Dr. Berger and his willingness to go forward with this challenging triple procedure considering the condition of my left eye. I am pleased with the results and appreciate his patience and, importantly, his skill with this difficult procedure. I also appreciate Lisa Oliveri for her patience fitting me with a scleral contact lens. The office receptionist/appointment coordinator, Giovanni, is always friendly, courteous and willing to help. I am so thankful for those who offer their corneas at their time of passing. Without their donations, myself and so many others would not enjoy the benefits of this important contribution for the gift of sight. Denis B.
