  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not worth the wait

If you like a dr who is never on time and always sarcastic, this dr is for you! After keeping me waiting well over an hour every visit (at least 10) he then has no time or interest to answer questions.

Excellent, highly professional physician

Dr. Berk takes his time, especially with new patients, to obtain as complete and accurate profile of the patient as is possible. He will review past history, including family history, and current state of health. That some wait times are extended attests to Dr. Berk's thoroughness and his desire to serve his patients in the best possible way.

Not the nicest doctor

My initial meeting with dr. berk did drive me to lose 80lbs. I think he could have been more courteous and not ask me the following question in our first meeting..."How does it feel to be thought of as a monster when I walk down the street?" I thought his comment was rude and uncalled for it is not the right approach to take with a patient. Other than that episode he was okay at best. I have been paranoid to make an appointment to see about a possible hernia I may have developed recently because of his rudeness to prejudge.
