Fixing what couldn't be fixed
A review by a patient that verified they have visited David L Berger - Posted on June 13th, 2016
I first came in contact with Dr Berger after I had been operated on twice for diverticulitis by a different surgeon in a different hospital. I experienced numerous complications including fistulas and adhesions and ended up with a colostomy , and t I was tolld it would be permanent by the surgeon who performed the procedure. I was only 40 and had 3 small children and was despondent. Dr. Berger accepted me as a patient and said the take down of the colostomy would be very challenging. He also said he liked a challenge. His confidence was exhilarating. Dr Berger was successful and l now lead a very active life with out a colostomy bag attached to my abdomen. I will be forever grateful to him.
A lot of attitude; results of surgery TBD

Following a metastatic colon cancer diagnosis a team was formed to oversee my treatment with Dr. Berger as the surgeon. He has performed two liver (part of the treatment plan) resections, a colon resection with ileostomy and the reversal of the ileostomy. I've healed wonderfully with all four surgeries. I, along with my family, found his bedside manner to be warm and kind. He does have a large case load causing wait time but when my turn came I never felt rushed in my appointments with him. I also did not have to wait to get appointments. I referred a friend to him and she was equally as pleased. I feel blessed to have him on my medical team.
Great Surgeon! This guy is awesome!

I am just getting around to writing this review. I had my inguinal hernia repaired by Dr. Berger in 2014 at Mass General Hospital. I did a lot of research before choosing him. He is the energetic, confident type and is ready to rock n'roll on what ails you. I know some don't like that style. I like it. I don't even care about a surgeon's personality anyway. My main concern was that he excelled at the surgery I needed. And he does. His work for the Boston pro sports teams alone helps to prove that point. While others I know are still having problems months and years after their hernia repairs, not me, I am as good as new. Thanks, Dr. Berger!

Laparascopic Colon Surgery Patient

I recently had a laparascopic resection of a portion of large intestine to address repeated bouts of diverticulitis. I went into surgery well informed and well prepared. I believe Dr. Berger and his staff were outstanding! Excellent bedside manner. Surgery performed flawlessly as far as I can tell. Combined with the kindness and professionalism at MGH, I feel I received world-class care. I highly recommend Dr. Berger and MGH

My biggest complaint is he is insulting (thinking he's funny??????) and at surgery time he gave me needles before the IV took affect even though a nurse said she was giving me more to help the pain. He still gave me the painful needles. I think that wasn't very profession or nice. I wouldn't go to him again.
Very Talented Surgeon
Self-verified patient of David L Berger - Posted on May 23rd, 2011
Referred as top choice by my MGH based primary care doctor, took a little while as do all specialists there to be seen. Quick inspection of my likely hernia and he confirmed the diagnosis from a CT scan. Easy same day surgery with open incision which has healed beautifully. Typical fast moving surgeon who wont sit and talk about the weather or how your day goes but I just wanted to know the guy with the knife had talent, and he does
