Extremely Rude and Condescending

Literally the worst bedside manner I have ever seen in a doctor. Dr. Berkowitz is the most condescending and rude doctor I have ever encountered. He answers were short and snippy, and then had the nerve to say "What is it I am saying that you don't understand?" as though he were talking to his 5 year old grandson who is in trouble. The fact that he is an MFM is mind blowing and it is time for him to retire. My wife called him out on his attitude and he seemed to not even understand he was being rude, so it is possible that he suffers from some sort of sociopathy, in which case I feel some what bad about this review, but in any case you should avoid him as a doctor.
