I've been going to see Dr. Berman for over 20yrs. Always very professional and caring. Since I'm a diabetic had a few problems but they were resolved and my feet healed perfectly. I even recommended my daughter to go see him since the so called "specialist" couldn't help her but of course Dr. Berman did.

I first started seeing Dr. Berman from a referral given to me by my insurance company.He made an instant impression on me after I was put in the examining room by his assistant, he saw me within 5 minutes. I like that. His professionalism and caring demeanor is beyond anything I'm accustomed to in the past and I'm 68. He asks about other health issues I have relating to my feet like diabetes and gives me ideas that can make my feet better. I wish all my docs were like Dr. Berman. Kevin P.

If you have foot problem I would see Dr Berman -He is a wonderful Podiatrist. I had my bunion corrected with a new procedure that he specializes in- The Lapiplasty technique- My bunion was quite large and I was scarred of not being able to walk after surgery - I had surgery on a Monday and was walking within days and now am fully healed I am wearing my shoes comfortably and I am back to exercising pain free! Dr Berman is caring and answered all my questions with easy to understand explanations

Dr Berman treated my Diabetic Foot ulcer at the wound care center at Putnam Hospital- I suffered with an open sore on the bottom of my foot for a few months and was referred to PHC My foot responded to treatment almost immediately- Dr Berman's explanation of the treatment plan was easy to follow. With the use of specialized skin coverings , Hyperbaric Oxygen and shoe modifications I am happy to say I am healed.

Dr. Berman has treated my foot issues for over two years. He never fails to give me exact information about my issue and then complete an exact course of treatment, of which some include surgeries. Dr. Berman is a fine physician who I recommend to anyone with foot care needs.

My Fiance and I were on vacation in Saratoga Springs NY, he had a cut on his toe so went to Saratoga Hospital, he finally saw a Dr. and was told that they would have to amputate his big toe. we wanted to get a 2nd opinion, so we decided to leave our vacation , and go home to Carmel, NY. We went to Putnam Hospitals ER , he was admitted, after seeing Dr. Berman he was told his toe did have an infection but was treatable, so i am happy to report Dr.Berman saved his big toe. Highly recommend!!

Dr. Alan Berman is the absolute best. Did surgery on one of my toes 20 years ago. Problem solved. Went back to him for more surgery on a second toe this past week. Never considered anyone else. Putnam Hospital in Carmel, New York is where he works. Problem solved. The best!!!!!!!

Dr Berman performed a new procedure called Lapiplasty to treat my painful bunion. The results were remarkable. The procedure corrected my toe, removed my bump and most importantly, I am pain free. I highly recommend Dr Berman for all foot related problems.

After several consults for Bunion surgery, I found Dr. Berman at Somers Orthopedics. He suggested a relatively new twist on a procedure called Lapiplasty. I underwent the procedure in November. My recovery was almost painless (Not the norm they say), and within 3 mos I was back to exercising doing yoga, elliptical, and cycling. In 5 mos I was back to running 5K, wearing nice heels to work, and feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. Berman and the Lapiplasty procedure!! 5+ Stars!

I sought out Dr. Berman after many friends told me to go to Somers Orthopedics. I have two flat feet and was in a lot of pain. He implanted a Hyprocure in one foot with great results and I just got the other one done along with a Kidner Procedure. From day one he has always looked for the least invasive procedure to gain the best results, increased quality of life. I look forward to walking pain free.

I saw Dr Berman for plantar fascitis several months ago. I am happy to say that I am now pain free thanks to the orthotics and home stretching and PT he prescribed.

DR BERMAN IS A MAGICIAN !!! I went in to see him with severe pain in both feet . After a few quick x-rays , the Doc diagnosed my problem and then fitted me with some temporary orthotics to walk out the door. Amazingly , I could have DANCED out the door because my pain was virtually gone !! Great skills , great bed side manner , I would recommend him 100% to family , friends etc ......and I already have !! Thannk DR Berman !! John Blumberg Brewster, NY

Don't walk away from this place RUN! I went to this doctor because of arthritis in my ankle and Achilles tendon pain (here is the key ) in my left foot. He order x rays of my right only and none of my left. When I confronted him about it he said " Cmon back I'll xray your left". Yeah OK, what ever you say. I am going back to a place that took over two hours that x rayed the wrong foot. When I confronted the Dr. he said "well I didn't feel there was a need to.." I said thats what I am here for??
