I saw Dr. Bergin for acute knee pain and was extremely impressed. She was wonderful to talk to, diagnosed the problem (arthritis), explain it in detailed laymen's terms, had suggestions on how to deal with the pain both with and without medication and never gave me the feeling that she was in a rush. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Bergin was extremely helpful in her examination and explanation of the issue. She took ample time to discuss treatment and preventitive measures. She was very engaged and very friendly! I would highly recommend her services.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bergin for over 3 years. She saw me for a fall on my knee and again for my shoulder. Dr. Bergin is very caring and always takes the time to explain what is causing the condition. She is a doctor that I totally trust. She has great empathy for her patients. There are times when it seems that Dr. Bergin would gladly shoulder my pain if it would make me well. Listens well and charts a course toward recovery. I might add that her staff are great as well (esp Chad)

Dr. Bergin has been my orthopedic doctor for many years. She is a highly knowledgeable and caring physician. She is not quick to cut which I personally love, but if she has to do surgery you can be assured that you will get the best care and follow up to insure the success of the surgery. I can always count on great care from Dr Bergin, Chad, and the rest of her staff.

I've seen Dr. Bergin for two different conditions. For each she gave me a detailed explanation of what was going on and treatment options. For my bursitis in my shoulder she suggested, and I took, steroid injections. The second came about two years after the first and that has been four years ago with no complaints. The more serious one is a bilateral wrist sprain. A very bad one. Now eight years later it has become so severely arthritic that she suggests surgery. She's an excellent doc allround

Have been a patient for many years and normally have a good experience. However this last time I was disappointed with the what seemed to be lack of interest in getting my shoulder issue better. Left the office feeling very depressed and frustrated.

Have been working with Dr Bergin for 18 years and I walk easily because of her exceptional skill. Two knees that shouldn't work and I walk easily because of her

She is not very polite or good at saying things tactfully but she does give good advice so I continue to see her.

I would not recommend Dr. Bergin!! I originally visited for an injury and she quickly diagnosed it as a torn plantaris tendon and explained that that this should heal and that the Plantaris is not necessary any longer such as the appendix. . After continued pain/weakness I got a 2nd opinion and was told that I had a Calf Tear and that the previous at home therapy(as instructed) had actually worsened and delayed healing. MRI confirmed and I was put in Boot for 8wks to fix.
