Dr. Bertler in the past found melanoma on me that was over looked by an internal medicine Dr. and a dermatology Dr. (not from his clinic). He removed the melanoma . Going to Dr. Bertler was a life saving event for me.

Dr. Bertler has taken care of my entire family's skin care for many years. He is an experienced, knowledgeable physician who is also caring and compassionate. I have had a number of skin cancer procedures, and he has always been minimally invasive, yet thorough. He has performed Mohs surgery on my nose, a difficult place for healing and skin matching, and the small scar i have is not even visible. I would highly recommend him.
in New Franken, WI |
I have precancerous cells (Actinic Keratosis) and Dr. Bertler gave me excellent care when removing them and good follow-up exams. My husband has had squamous & basil skin cancer. He has had Mohs treatments and the Blue-Light Therapy plus Dr. Bertler performed a skin graft from his arm to his damaged leg. We both trust our lives to his care. He spends time with his patients. He is considerate, knowledgeable and efficient. We can't thank him & his staff enough!

I would very highly recommend Dr. Bertler to anyone. Dr. is the kindest, gentle, caring person I have ever met. He explains everything and leaves you feeling confident in his care.
in Appleton, WI |
Dr. Bertler toke the time to explain all options to me before we started. We discussed them and then we mutually agreed to proceed. This was very important to me and I appreciate it very much. He also was very personable and easy to talk to through out the procedure. The overall experience was painless.
in Ashwaubenon, WI |
Very good service and expertise!
in Green Bay, WI |
Dr. Bertler did a Mohs procedure on my face on February 16th. His manner is very pleasant and professional, as well as that of his assistants. The procedure was done quickly and neatly with no pain. This is the second time Dr. Bertler has done a Mohs procedure on my face. The first one healed very nicely with an almost invisible scar. Thank you, Dr. Bertler.

Very personable and very thorough.

Dr. Bertler has been my dermatologist for over 15 years, and I continue to see him for followup, although melanoma never returned. His level of professionalism is unmatched, and I trust his suggestions. He gives me control over how I want my treatment to go and listens carefully to my concerns and questions. I highly recommend him!
in Algoma, WI |
Been very happy with the services performed by Dr. Bertler. I have also recommended him to other acquaintances.
in Green Bay, WI |
Dr Bertler was very considerate, always asking how I was doing, while the surgery. He did explain just what he was doing. Although he was very busy that morning, he would stop and ask if I was okay. He, along with the nurses attending, were very thoughtful and explained things to me. I had 9 stitches, which surprised me. I had them removed the following week and there is just a slight skar on my forehead. If I ever need any surgery in the future, I definitely would ask for him to perform I
in Appleton, WI |
Excellent care, wonderful manner with patients, listened carefully to me, very personable, concerned and friendly. Inspires confidence in his abilities, and I was very satisfied.
New Franken, WI |
I am completely satisfied with Dr. Bertler. Takes time to explain things, as telling a person skin cancer is what you have. Explains in my age group, why this happens, suggests what to use for preventing this any further. He does not just try one thing, but whatever he believes will see me through this journey. Is willing to smile and have a laugh in all the seriousness of his profession. Not always easy in this profession. Thank you to Dr. Bertler for all of the help and concerns.
in Kimberly, WI |
Takes the time to explain the situation and what he is going to do. Excellent bedside manner. Easy to talk to. Highly recommend.
