Are you kidding me? My feet are soooo messed up. Tired of limping around because of her. She is NOT qualified to be a surgeon , just saying....

Review for Dr. Berger

If you’re a breast cancer patient, run. He blames other surgeons for his mistakes, does no post op care until there’s a problem and explains only the surgeries he wants to complete. He botched my mastectomy and I will have subsequent surgeries to repair done in Omaha. Keep on driving.

Review for Dr. Orchard

I have not had my procedure yet, How ever the office visit was great. The nurse, his P.A. and Dr, Fitzke were all very professional and answered my questions. The appointment was not rushed. I will reevaluate after my procedure.
