Five Stars

Excellent doc who combines old time common sense with recommendations for high tech tests. He is appropriately funny, and very clear about serious issues. He is personable and thorough. I highly recommend him for accurate diagnosis of difficult problems.

I love this GUY!

Dr. Berger has been my primary doctor for over 20 years. He takes time and really listens to me! He engages in conversation other than my chief complaint at the time. He has always been accessible to me and has never made me feel like I was wasting his time no matter what I was talking about. He is wonderful. I love him!

Needs to retire

Some doctors, even as they get older, are plesant and accommodating. Dr. Berger is not one of them. He wants to quickly assess you and does not want to communicate with you like a doctor should. I really feel he does not want to be thorough and just wants "easy" patients. After my lab work is done and I know the results, I am changing doctors.

Two Stars

Dr. Berger had been great for me since I've been seeing him for about 10 years now. I have decided to stop seeing him when he gave me the wrong dosage for my thyroid. He was giving me more dosage instead of less. I decided to pay extra and go directly with the specialist. The specialist told me he was giving me the wrong dosage of medication. So now I've decided to go see the specialist. I was disappointed because I wasn't feeling good and I trusted that he was giving me good care. I'm glad I went to see the specialist!
