    Dr. Berger did my cataract surgery and it was a great success! I no longer need glasses and am thrilled with the results. His kind, professional demeanor and friendly staff was also greatly appreciated. I would recommend him without reservation!

    Dr. Berger and staff are very courteous and the wait time was minimal. Before my procedure I had cataracts and wore glasses/contacts. After having the lenses in my eyes replaced, I have 20/20 vision. The recovery time was very short and I'd do it again if I had to. If you're having eye issues, I recommend giving Dr. Berger's office a call and making an appointment.
