I had a horrible experience with him, esp after he performed surgery on me. I am currently having to see another orthopedic spinal surgeon to fix my back. Be very cautious when dealing with this surgeon.

I saw Dr Bergin and we agreed I would have surgery. After that it became a nightmare. I ended up with a spinal fluid leak. (He repeatedly told me it was an inflammatory response and gave me Norco and steroids around the clock. I asked for another MRI but he waited until 2.5 weeks after the surgery...more

Today was the first time I met Dr. Bergin. His first question to me was why was I there. Then I told him that I was referred to him and all about my pain and issues and bulging discs. He took one look at my MRI and said well the good news for you is that you don't need surgery, but that is bad news...more

I sincerely apologize for your experience with me. As much as my practice focuses on spinal surgery, I am very conservative in recommending an operation. There is a great deal of unnecessary spinal surgery that goes on in our country. I was trying to use humor in explaining that. It was clearly a bad joke, and I apologize for that. Best of luck. You are always welcome back anytime. I wish I could be of more help.
