Dr Alan Berg is the best rheumatologist! I am in total remission thanks to him. He has always given me the time to answer each and every concern and questions I have. His staff is caring and takes time with you. I can’t praise him enough. If you’re looking for a professional look no further than Dr Alan Berg! He gave me back my life! Thank you Dr Berg!

I was very nervous about a possible condition and I was referred to Dr. Berg by my PCP. Dr. Berg's gentle mannerisms put me at ease as he clearly explained my situation to me. I feel very confident that I am under care with a very capable Rheumatologist.

I went to Dr. Berg for a second opinion. He was belligerent and rude, asking me why I was seeing him instead of the other physician. He told me, without doing any further testing, that my fatigue was due to sleep apnea. When I expressed my doubts about his diagnosis lacking many of the normal symptoms, he replied, "Rare things are rare." When I pressed further he said, "If it is not due to apnea, it is due to you being morbidly obese." I've since seen another physician that disputes his DX.

This was the Worst person I have ever encountered , he is Ignorant and degrading, he did not answer any of my questions, I would never recommend anything to see him, he is truly the devil in disguise. Sad to say he was training another MD hopefully she won't learn any of his awful behavior

I will not ever go back to dr berg again he is a very uncaring dr does not listen to nor cares what you have to say only hears what he wants

I saw Dr. Berg on the 27th of October, 2016. He was excellent in discussing my knee problem. I was especially impressed by the willingness to answer all my questions, even going back to my charts as I was leaving to make sure I had received a liver function test recently. I was impressed with his complete attention to all I had asked of him. I could not be more pleased. Lawrence Myers
Rude and uncaring. No compassion whatsoever. Waste of money going here. Nothing different than before i went in

Even though I was the only person in the office, I waited 53 minutes for my appointment. He insisted on payment first. I showed him my swollen joints and gave a list of my symptoms. He said try Tai Chi and aerobics, and to take fish oil capsules. I have done for years. I told him I used to work out every morning aerobics and weight training, but that now when I work out I cannot function the rest of the day and it interferes with my work schedule. He was rude, insulting, impatient; no help.
