      Dr. Berson rocks! Every time I spoke with him he took extra time to answer all my questions, some of them twice :). He was very knowledgeable about the procedure and was very kind. I had the surgical procedure done yesterday and I feel great nothing like the horror stories online. This is my second surgery at this office and both times I had a great experience with the Dr's and staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I would recommend Dr. Berson to anyone needing surgery! Thank you again!

      My experience with Dr. Her son was terrifying. His PA, Stephanie Horning, lied. He yelled at me, a 65 yr old woman, who was already in pain, because I said Stephanie lied. She said if I could eat a Full non clear liquid diet, hold down an Ibuprofen and have a BM She would release me right away. I did it! She lied. I was wrong for calling her a b*&#h and apologized. Dr. B came into my room and lost self control and threw me out of the hospital in the snow at 10 pm. Totally Unprofessional!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
