in New Market, MD |
I had a very nasty case of complicated diverticulitis, requiring emergency surgery and was given a Colostomy. 6 months later, when it came time to do the reversal surgery, my original surgeon was on leave of absence and Dr. Berg was recommended to me by my Ostomy nurse. Dr Berg was extremely professional and he explained the next steps in great detail. Dr Berg performed the Colostomy reversal & a temporary Ileostomy. 6 months later, I am fully healed and I have my life back. Thank you Dr Berg!
Dr. Berg correctly diagnosed my condition after seeing 8 previous doctors over a 2 year period. He was extremely confident in his abilities and took the time to explain how he would proceed with the surgery. He answered all of our questions and his staff was patient and courteous as well. The office wait time didn't bother me since I was able to book the appointment without waiting months to get in. Believe me--he is worth the few minutes of wait time to see!!

Arogant and "knew" my cure before even discussing the history of my condition. Needless to say, his first cure didn't help. Scheduled a follow up appointment, office called to reschedule, and doctor was at least 1.5 hours behind for the rescheduled appointment. So I told the receptionist I couldn't wait that long because I had to go back to work. I called the office a few days later to reschedule and they gave me a difficult time because I canceled appointment. I'm never going back to Berg

As a result of my 82 year old mother's colonoscopy it was discovered she had rectal cancer. We were referred to Dr. Berg and within a couple of weeks he performed surgery and successfully removed the tumor. She has almost completed her radiation and chemo which was advised as a precaution. Dr. Berg took the necessary time to explain the best way to surgically remove the tumor and answered all of our questions. We found him to be courteous and compassionate. We definitely recommend Dr. Berg!
