I could give you fifty reasons why to see Dr. Berkowitz but let me say it in just a few words. He's got the most experience, seen it all and is a good man. He will be retiring soon and I will personally miss him.

Review for Dr. Berkowitz

I felt like I was talking with a very knowledgeable friend, so at ease. Explained everything in layman’s turns. Was interested in some things I told him about a new surgery only one dr is doing. Caring. I feel I’m in excellent hands.

I saw Dr. Pastika for over 20 years and can confidently say he was the best doctor I’ve ever seen. Dr. Pastika has no big ego and is more compassionate than any doctor I’ve ever had. I’ve been to hospitals all over country and still would recommend Dr. Pastika over any other doctor.

Review for Dr. Radke

Ignored obvious type 1 diabetes symptoms in my son and my son could have died. (My son lost a lot of weight, had breath that smelled like nail polish remover and was dehydated) and Weintraub said my son was faking it to get out of going to school. My son loves school.

Angry Mother Aug 02 2019

Review for Dr. Weintraub

His office staff was fantastic he on the other is just the opposite. Thanks to him I am now crippled, what started as routine turned into a TKR and was sent home with infection in my tibia. Before I reached the rehab stint the Doctor took off out off state to Wisconsin.

Went to an office visit and waited over a half an hour to see her. When I did see her she was very patronizing and said everything was OK and then left the room. Saw her for about 4-5 minutes tops. Never let me ask a question or anything. Would not recommend her to anyone.

Inattentive and dismissive; seems keen on acting unilaterally as an expert rather than collaborating with patients. No hint of compassion or understanding for the patient's experience at all. Just very frustrating.

Dr Niccolai did orthoscopic surgery on my knee. He was reluctant to operate until we were sure it would not heal without surgery. The surgery fixed the issue and allowed me to run again. Great experience.
