What People Say About Dr. Emily Berger, MD

Agree with other reviewer that the doc may need more experience. She used the word "like" over and over again. She talked over me, very loudly when I asked questions. It was off putting. Seems knowledgeable, seems caring - but really needs to work on communication skills with patient and parent. Friendly staff, long wait time (though it was early morning appt), clean office. Will return and give it one more shot before switching to a different doctor.

We have seen Dr. Berger since my son was a baby. He's now 4. She's the only doctor who properly diagnosed the issue and prescribed the right amount of medication. The supporting staff is excellent too!

I can’t say she was the easiest person to talk to. She was a little dismissive and she didn’t seem to care much about my sons condition. She minimized my concerns and probably only spoke with me for about five minutes, if that, both times. The nurse expressed more concern and attention than she did. It was rather frustrating. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re not too concerned about the condition and just need some guidance.
