Took the Money and Ran

Absolutely a scam artist. Charged big buck for a consult and proposed a concrete plan...the problem...no follow-up at all...no commutation for months. Then when I finally pestered enough he told me I need some expensive testing to proceed --- completely contrary to his initial advice. I would stay away...does NOT see legit at all!!!

Five Stars

I was fortunate to find Dr. Berndtson 10 years ago when I had an acute condition. I credit Dr. Berndtson with saving my life. He is truly a deeply caring and empathic doctor. Not only was he able to accurately diagnosis my condition with testing, he provided the necessary treatments for a full recovery. Then Dr. Berndtson went deeper to better understand other health challenges I faced and developed a comprehensive treatment plan. My health has never been better. I have complete confidence that any concern I bring to Dr. Berndtson will be addressed. The Park Ridge office is a calm and peaceful setting to support healing. I feel so grateful to have found such a wonderful doctor.

One Star

Worst doctor ever! Went in and he told me due to legal issues he was giving me this diagnosis. He was not interested in helping me overcome my illness, but was only diagnosing me a certain way due because he did not want to get sued. Did not offer me a natural way to help my illness inside told me I need heave medicine. I have been to much better holistic people since. The integrative institute of health and wellness on central and higgins is much much better. They are more interested in the right way to treat patients that doesn't involve medicine and more interest din the patient and not in avoiding a diagnosis for legal reasons.

Doctor's Response

I have no recollection of such an encounter with a patient. The description given paints me in a light that is way out of my characteristic way of relating to patients. I am only interested in whether a diagnosis is accurate. Beyond diagnosis, I am interested in developing power to explain the root dynamics and causes of the kinds of health problems I see in my practice. I am glad to know that this individual found a source of care more to his or her liking.

A new approach to medicine

I have never met a doctor like Keith Berndtson, or "Dr. B." as so many like to call him. He is bound and determined to get to the bottom of medical issues, and has an open and caring manner that makes you feel comfortable discussing your problems.He is interested in your whole health picture, not just symptoms, and will work with you on getting the right diagnosis and treatment plan.I wholeheartedly recommend him!

The Best There Is

I have been his patient for more than 10 years. Dr. B. has treated me with excellent care for the following issues: CFS, Firbromyalgia, Osteo Arthritis, hypertension and everything in between. Dr. B. and his staff give new meaning to holistic or whole person care. His relaxed and open minded manner makes it easy to talk about personal issues that effect my physical health. Patients are his number one concern, not time. Yet he is usually on time. I find that amazing. Dr. Berndtson sets a standard that is difficult if not impossible for other physicians to meet. I hope other Doctors will take a look at his example and learn from it. Treat yourself to a visit with him. I know you will not be disappointed!
