Fabulous doctor who is thoughtful, professional, caring, and conservative. Ive worked with him for many years.
in Boston, MA |
Very unprofessional and uncaring attitude! My time with Dr. Berson was extremely rushed. I've been suffering with eye problems for months and was hoping to discuss my symptoms and treatment in detail. He did not allow for this and I left with no answers or hope for alleviating my suffering.
