Specialties

Dr. Mark A Berk has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

Dr Berk is very through.

I cannot say enough about Dr Berk. He spotted a small lesion on my face and new even before the pathology report came back what type of cancer it was. He removed it from my face and I do not even have a scar. He is awesome. I have been seeing him almost since he opened his office in Lake Forest. An Evcellent Dr.

Dr Berk is not that good of a Dr, he missed a skin cancer on my husband. Dr Dillig is much better. Also, Dr Berk always runs late and seems rushed, not my kind of Dr!!!!

Average at best

1) Zero respect for patient time. I visited his office two times and in both instances had to wait more than an hour. 2) He will cut everything off you for biopsy whether or not he thinks there is a chance of malignancy. In my opinion he does this to create fees. 3) He misdiagnosed a very basic skin issue as psoriasis without ever asking me if there was a family history or looking at the rest of my body to see if I had anything remotely like psoriasis. I went to another doctor and got an appropriate diagnosis. 4) he doesn't explain well and expects that patients should accept that he knows best.
