Two Stars

I use to think Dr. Berard was a good doctor. That changed one visit when I informed him I would be having surgery. He asked where and when I told him he strongly suggested a different hospital. I told him I already had my surgeon and would stay with him. Four different times during that visit he kept pushing the hospital he wanted me to go to even though he is not affiliated with it. After that the doctor-patient relationship felt like it had became adversarial. I now feel like I'm not suppose to have any input into my care and definitely feel like I'm not to question it.

Fantastic Doctor

Had it not been for Dr. Berard, I don't know if I would be able to write this review today. I became his patient when my former Doctor retired. I made an appointment with him one Winter thinking I had the "flu". He knew instantly that it was not the Flu. After reading results from a blood test and CT Scan, he diagnosed me correctly saying I would need "3 more doctors;" I needed immediate surgery for Cancer but because I was severely anemic I had to have 4 iron infusions before surgery. Dr. Berard has a pleasing personality, is very patient and listens carefully to everything his patient says. Today I have recovered, am Cancer free and enjoying life once again. I am so gratefully that he pointed me in the right direction. Also, I went to Sibley Hospital in NW which I highly recommend very clean, their motto: "Patients First"; and they practice Johns Hopkins Medicine. Surgery a Breeze.

The best physician I ever consulted

I had been going to Dr. Berard for over ten years, until I relocated to another city. He is the best physician I ever consulted, and, in fact, he saved my life by diagnosing a potential heart attack before it could happen, and referred me to an excellent cardiologist. He is most understanding, careful in diagnosis, and spends time with patients. I only wish I were again living in College Park so that I could continue with Dr. Berard.

An excellent listener

I have been a patient of Dr Beratd's for many years. Although once in the office, the wait time can be long, I know this and bring a book to read. I think he is an excellent doctor , well worth the wait.
