    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.

Great Doctor

I am more than pleased with the level of service I ALWAYS receive under Dr. Berk's care. The frontline staff are always cordial, pleasant, and caring and the technicians are professional and qualified. The foot nurse is at the very top of her game - I have been to a LOT of foot nurses, and I KNOW the good from the bad! Dr. Berk is personable, knowledgeable, caring, and HUMAN! I have not only referred other family members to Dr. Berk, but I have physically escorted them to his office. If you are a senior citizen - diabetic or not - I would recommend Dr. Berk to treat you from head to toe.

Good doctor!

Dr. Berk is a good doctor, he has been my general physician for about 6 years. He listens to what you have to say and answers as many questions as you might have. He makes changes as appropriate to medications if needed, and apparently accurately diagnoses things. The only disconcerting thing about his manner is that he leaves without saying goodbye, so you might not be sure the appointment is over. However, you can call him back if you have further questions. The phone hours are misstated or something because in the afternoon they stop answering the phone about an hour before it is stated. I wish they would fix this.

Not a great experience

I have seen Dr. Burk on several occasions for annual checkups, etc, never for an actual illness. Most recently I was looking for wellness input as I turned 40. Despite repeated requests, I got very little useful input. He was much more interested in telling me about some computer upgrades he'd recently done on his home PCs. Of the 10 minutes of facetime, over 5 was spent on this topic. Seriously, he wouldn't quit. I was able to get him to run some minimal blood work (cholesterol, lipids). To retrieve the results, you have to call a voicemail system, where he quickly reads them off. There's no formal report delivered, so I've now forgotten the numbers. On the plus side, I've never waited long in the waiting area. I won't be going back after this most recent visit.

Too busy yawning to help me.....

Dr. Berk spent 5 minutes with me and during this period yawned about 10 times. Apparently my 5 years of medical problems were boring for his 5 minute $200 office visit. Terrible experience with him. I have no idea how he received Best Doctor Award in St. Louis. Do not waste you time.
