Dr. Berg has been treating me for various ear infections and sinus issues for the last 13 years. He is a caring and compassionate about his patients. I am truly convinced that he is one of the best ENT's in the state of NJ. When I was 21-23 years old, I would get continuous ear infections almost weekly. After seeing my Primary Care doctors for months, he recommended Dr. Berg. Dr. Berg, saved my hearing. I will be forever grateful for his professionalism and care.

Does not listen to patient, on the surgery he just left without seen me or my family unlike other Drs did with their patients at the same time. Is the kin of Dr that wants to make money and leave, not even leaving work note for recovering process. If you are looking for a Dr that at least have a minimal ethic on his practice, DO NOT SEE HIM, he does not have any.

Dr. Berg saw my 2 year old the same day I called his office. He was so calm and was able to remove the object she stuck deep in her ear. I believe his patience and direction is what kept my child from having to have anesthesia.

Dr. Berg is the most amazing doctor. He has done ear surgeries on both of my kids (tubes, adenoids, etc.) and has been working with us for the past 5 years. He saved my son's hearing. He is fantastic with kids and goes above and beyond a typical doctor's interaction with them. He is by far the best doctor and specialist I have ever had.

This doctor does not listen carefully.I found he jumped to conclusions and made assumptions that were incorrect based limited information, before I could explain fully. He was very quick to judge on partial information, that if explained further, would have led him to different conclusions in a variety of areas. I found that very annoying, and potentially dangerous. Also,it was not good spraying lidocaine in my nose and throat, and scoping me BEFORE explaining what he was about to do!!! Rus
