I've been to a lot of different Medical Doctors and no one compares to Dr. Alan S. Berns and his staff! He has helped me so much. He's made me feel at ease, and it has always been a good experience. Thank you for your time and consideration in this important matter.

Dr. Berns is THE BEST. I was recommended to see him from my therapist for some medical intervention for my anxiety and depression. He makes you comfortable and talks you through everything - not just your symptoms and diagnosis, but all the prescription options as well in such detail: how they work, what the possible side effects are, what to look out for, etc. It was very reassuring to understand how the medicine actually helps - the knowledge this man possesses is incredible. He keeps in contact and re-evaluates not only how you are reacting to the prescription but how your life is overall. His staff is wonderful and they work hard to get you whenever you need it despite being so busy. I never felt rushed, over-medicated, or confused about anything. If you are seeking help, please see this doctor!

I can not say enough good things regarding Dr. Berns and his staff! They are very professional and yet so understanding when emergency arise. Dr Berns goes to every length to make sure you are well taken care off. I'm not sure where I would be mentally if it were not for him. I have anxiety and i'm bipolar i've struggled with this for many years and saw different doctors and no one was able to take care of me like he has. Thank you Dr. Berns! I feel normal again!

I’ve been seeing Dr Berns for 10 years and he treats my mood & anxiety disorders. He is the BEST doctor I have ever seen and I’m grateful to be in his care. He is empathetic, timely, does NOT rush appointments (at least 30 minutes with him), professional, and he will call me back on the SAME day in emergencies! He is busy but he & his excellent staff will always find room to book me in for an emergency appointment. I’ve never had a long wait in his waiting room! A+++++ Shannon M

Dr Berns has been my Dr for many years. He is kind and patient. He really cares about his patients. He isn't like other Psychiatrists who spend 5 minutes with you, give you meds and push you out the door. He truly wants to know what is going on in your life and how you are feeling. Couldn't ask for a better doctor.

I am grateful to have Dr. Berns as my psychiatrist. His pleasant staff and kind wife make this a family affair. Dr. Berns gently peels back the layers of dark emotions and helps the patient begin to see light again. I thank God for giving Dr. Berns the power beyond what is normal to help others going through difficult times. I respect his wealth of knowledge in diagnosing and prescribing treatments as well as giving me the behavioral tools to help myself. He's a dedicated & compassionate Dr.

I was referred to Dr. Alan S. Berns by my workers comp adjuster after the passing of my previous psychiatrist Dr. Kolin. I have been seeing Dr. Berns for several years and I am very lucky that they referred me to Dr. Berns. His staff are very professional and courteous and Dr. Berns is a very smart and extremely intelligent psychiatrist who cares about his patients. He is always very thorough and wants to know everything that is going on in your life and takes his time with you. Great doctor.
