Patient Comments (2)
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Berman diagnosed me with cataracts. I actually had a large tumor on my pituitary gland and was going blind. I have permanent damage to my optic nerve. I told him I could not see that it was like looking through a window with Vaseline. He replied that if I had trouble with playing tennis his colleague could remove the cataract. Had he not been so arrogant and administered a field vision test, he would have know I had an optic nerve issue. I have permanent vision impairment as a result.

He misdiagnosed a pituitary tumor as cataracts. I have lost vision in my left eye as a result of his negligence.
