Superiority complex, dismissive, minimizes

Dr. Berges is the only choice for my insurance that is closest to me, so I will provide you a detailed experience. As you know, reviews are subjective, but I will try to provide additional details to portray my experience/perspective of him. My first visit went fairly normal, when you come into his office you go to the front, write your name down, and check in with the receptionist for your scheduled appointment. You are asked for your copay(variable based on insurance), and then once you sign and receive a copy of your receipt you wait until you are called. Mr. Berges greets you as you enter his office. I filled out the initial paperwork prior to sitting down with him and none of that information was discussed. It was strictly neurological issues. He did perform some physical checks on my knee cap and arm and leg. When he asked about what was wrong I explained my circumstances, looked up some relevant information from the hospital, and he decided to prescribe epilepsy medicine. My second visit is where you can understand the ways in which Dr. Berges dismisses, minimizes, and behaves in ways that one may describe as that of someone who believes they are superior to you. After I took my MRI and EEG I wrote down a series of questions about my medication, and made my second appointment, which did not happen until a month later. Perhaps doctors sometimes don't have the time to answer their patients' questions, and I can understand that if you must take priority over more important matters for your private practice, however these questions were given a month prior. When I first entered the office I mentioned that I did not take the medication, and he was somewhat upset. This is not something to be upset about, as a doctor he must know that there is nothing he can do to force the pills into my body outside of the boundaries of his office. When the questions were brought up, he asked in my best translation from Spanish to English "What are these questions of yours?" "What is this fear that you have?" I felt speechless and I asked about taking them for the rest of my life. In hindsight I can see how he understood that it was fear, but that was not an appropriate demeanor to express to a patient who is cautious about incorporating medicine into their routine for the rest of their life. He did not take the time to answer the questions one by one. I ended up asking a few of them just before I left the office with a "Yes, Sir", "Yes, Sir" one after the other. Before I left the office he said "Portese bien," which is a phrase commonly used in Spanish from adult to child, or the equivalent of "Be good," "Behave yourself." Dr. Berges can say to me that I am an adult, but he cannot say that he says those lasting words to all of his patients. When other reviewers say the he may be belligerent, unprofessional, insensitive, egotistical, or presumptuous, understand that these are probably ways of being treated that not everyone notices or considers a strong first impression, but they can be observed if your circumstances with this doctor cause him to feel like you're resisting his treatment. TLDR; Doctor did not answer questions after a month between appointment, told me to behave myself, felt somewhat offended by me not taking his prescribed medication.

Two Stars

Dr. Berges was very brief in diagnosis on follow up visit. On first and second visits he spoke of my Primary Physician in negative ways. Very unprofessional. Seemed to be in a hurry on second visit. Would not recommend this Doctor as a Neurologist.
